Learned Publishing's North American Editor, Lettie Y. Conrad, presents October's "Editor's Choice" articles, which represent the high-quality of work in this quarterly issue. These highlights cover home country bias in academic publishing, data availability policies and impact measurement, bibliometric analysis of highly disseminated COVID-19 research papers, and article processing charge expenditure in Chile. There are also several pieces that focus on researchers – including how journals are overburning their peer reviewers, how early-career scholars are reshaping publishing, and trends in the users of open access. Other authors address matters of journal administration, from peer review objectivity, conference proceeding preprints, and the value and impact of special issues.
