Call For Papers
Publications (ISSN 2304-6775) is an international, peer-reviewed, fully open access journal that provides an advanced forum for research studies related to all aspects of scholarly publishing. We, the Editorial Board, are convinced that scholarly publishing, as the gateway to the academic record, should be studied and critically analysed in all of its social and technological dimensions with the same scholarly rigour expected of the research that it guides to publication. Scholarly publishing has only recently begun to exploit the full potential of digital networked technologies, which affects the wider process of research communication, including public access to and engagement with research. Powerful trends towards responsible research and innovation, the globalisation of research, the emergence and inclusion of new or previously excluded stakeholders, and the advent of open science are reshaping the scope and nature of scholarly publishing. The social, legal and ethical dimensions of publications continue to co-evolve with these changes. Publications aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scholars, publishing professionals, librarians and others to communicate original empirical and theoretical research on these and related topics to address current issues and inform best practice.

The scope of Publications includes:

    Theory and practice of scholarly communication
    Digitisation and innovations in scholarly publishing technologies
    Metadata, infrastructure, and linking the scholarly record
    Publishing policies and editorial/peer-review workflows
    Financial models for scholarly publishing
    Copyright, licensing and legal issues in publishing
    Research integrity and publication ethics
    Issues and best practices in the publication of non-traditional research outputs (e.g., data, software/code, protocols, data management plans, grant proposals, etc.)
    Issues in the transition to open access and open science
    Inclusion and participation of traditionally excluded actors
    Language issues in publication processes and products
    Traditional and alternative models of peer review
    Traditional and alternative means of assessment and evaluation of research and its impact, including bibliometrics and scientometrics
    The place of research libraries, scholarly societies, funders and others in scholarly communication
