"Who Should We Trust?"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing on February 2nd, 2015 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Kevin Smith has published "Who Should We Trust?" in Scholarly Communications @ Duke.

Here's an excerpt:

It is not that we exactly trust commercial publishers, nor do we exactly distrust them. We may recognize that the values and goals of the commercial publishing business are different from, and even in conflict with, the best interests of scholarly authors and of scholarship itself. Perfectly nice people, working to advance their own interests as best they can, come in to conflict as the conditions for research and teaching change. And a real ambivalence is created because of how interwoven the parts of the academic enterprise are. More than just inertia is a work; important aspects of the academic enterprise remain interlocked with traditional forms of publication.

"PeerJ—A PLOS ONE Contender in 2015?"

Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals, Self-Archiving on February 2nd, 2015 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Phil Davis has published "PeerJ—A PLOS ONE Contender in 2015?" in The Scholarly Kitchen.

Here's an excerpt:

In my last post, I reported that PeerJ was growing, publishing more papers and attracting more authors, although it was not clear whether the company was moving toward financial stability. In a crowded market of multidisciplinary open access journals, I argued that the success (or failure) of PeerJ would be determined when it received its first Impact Factor, which will be announced in mid-June with the publication of Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Report. The purpose of this post is to estimate PeerJ's first Impact Factor and discuss its implications.
