Learned Publishing: Volume 33, No 3, July
The July issue Learned Publishing is now online – and offers data-driven forward-looking resources of particular importance as we all juggle the impacts of the global pandemic. In particular, there are some must-read articles in our latest issue:
• Publishing during pandemic: An editorial looking at how the publishing landscape has adapted in the recent pandemic and what initiatives have been launched in response to changing needs.
• An overview of The changed – and changing—landscape of serials publishing, and various emerging models (which may be ever-more important in the near future).
• Report from the Platform for Responsible Editorial Policies (PREP) initiative, aimed at establishing increased editorial transparency and responsible journal management.
Several authors reflect on recent insights into the research practices of scholars around the world, including attitudes toward plagiarism and selecting venues for publishing and communications. Two articles address untrustworthy journals, including an exploration of the number of Australian academics who participate as editors in such publications. Early career researchers (ECR) are a hot topic again, from trends in sharing research to the results of a global survey on ECR attitudes toward scholarly communications.
These, along with a history of the CHORUS initiative, a review of monograph rights management challenges, and much more, this issue offers both practical and inspirational ideas to help guide us through the tumultuous season ahead.
Wishing you and yours good health,
Lettie Y. Conrad
North American Editor
