April 2023 and July 2023 Issues of Learned Publishing are available and they include a broad range of content, and hopefully something to pique the interest of all our readers!
Both issues offer readers articles on editorial issues and publication ethics, including several industry-relevant opinion pieces in the July issue.
Citations and metrics are covered in an original article on the H-score (April).
Metadata in the form of contributor taxonomies and ontologies is examined in an original article (April).
Predatory publishing is studied in relation to research funding and research collaboration (July).
Several particularly timely issues are covered in these volumes as well:
• Discussion on the potential role of artificial intelligence (April) in scholarly communications, and the practical and ethical considerations relating using AI technologies in publishing workflows.
• Two original articles examining Data sharing and open data (July) evaluate the status of data sharing, namely, looking at data reuse, integration and dataset release, and the effect of citation count when publishing separate research papers and data sets.
• An industry update on digital preservation (April) and its need for constant reinvention.
• Two original articles on the Harbinger’s project (April), related to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on early career researchers
