      Posted in Publishing, Reports and White Papers on January 27th, 2016

      The American Booksellers Association and Civic Economics have released Amazon and Empty Storefronts.

      Here's an excerpt:

      In 2014, Amazon sold $44.1 billion worth of retail goods nationwide, all while avoiding $625 million in state and local sales taxes.

      That is the equivalent of 3,215 retail storefronts. . . which might have paid $420 million in property taxes.

      A total of more than $1 billion in revenue lost to state and local governments, $8.48 for every household in America.

          "An Update on Peer Review and Research Data"

          Posted in Data Curation, Open Data, and Research Data Management, Open Science, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on January 26th, 2016

          Fiona Murphy has published "An Update on Peer Review and Research Data" in Learned Publishing.

          Here's an excerpt:

          As has been outlined here, the question of how to review research data and incorporate this into the publication process remains a knotty one. Various groups have made a certain amount of progress with potential recommendations, and domain-related and technical support functions are also emerging. However, the critical mass of active researchers has so far failed to engage.

            "Peer Review in Megajournals Compared with Traditional Scholarly Journals: Does It Make a Difference?"

            Posted in Open Access, Publishing, Scholarly Journals on January 26th, 2016

            Bo-Christer Björk and Paul Catani have published "Peer Review in Megajournals Compared with Traditional Scholarly Journals: Does It Make a Difference?" in Learned Publishing.

            Here's an excerpt:

            We report on a small pilot study in which we looked at the citation distributions for articles in megajournals compared with journals with traditional peer review, which also evaluate articles for contribution and novelty. We found that elite journals with very low acceptance rates have far fewer articles with no or few citations, but that the long tail of articles with two citations or less was actually bigger in a sample of selective traditional journals in comparison with megajournals.
