Learned Publishing: Volume 33, No 2, April 2020
The April issue of Learned Publishing is now online – and features thought-provoking as well as practical articles on key topics of discussion in our community:
Ethics and authorship:
• Our editor-in-chief, Pippa Smart, kicks off the issue asking: Is filtering censorship?
• Read a study of the limitations of retraction notices and the authors who self-retract.
• Also find out who publishes in predatory OA journals, and why.
• Authorship and peer-review practices of early career researchers is examined in the latest installment from the Harbingers project, along with a summary of 3-year research endeavor.
• Researchers’ attitudes and perceptions towards data sharing and data reuse in the field of food science and technology.
Impact and reputation:
• What would happen to the ranking of PLOS ONE if split into multiple titles, such as 101 specialty journals?
• And what is the relationship between impact factor and peer review?
Transformative business models:
• Learn more about the new model “subscribe to open” and how it offers a practical approach to converting to OA.
• Don’t miss Kent Anderson’s analysis of bioRxiv, exploring where (and if) articles are published after pre-print dissemination.
May these articles offer both practical and inspirational ideas to help guide us through the tumultuous weeks ahead.
With best wishes for your health & safety,
