Defining and Characterizing Open Peer Review: A Review of the Literature

Emily Ford      


Changes in scholarly publishing have resulted in a move toward openness. To
this end, new, open models of peer review are emerging. While the scholarly
literature has examined and discussed open peer review, no established
definition of it exists, nor are there uniform implementations of open peer
review processes. This article examines the literature discussing open peer
review, identifies common open peer review definitions, and describes eight
common characteristics of open peer review: signed review, disclosed review,
editor-mediated review, transparent review, crowd-sourced review,
pre-publication review, synchronous review, and post-publication review.
This article further discusses benefits and challenges to the scholarly
publishing community posed by open peer review and concludes that open peer
review can and should exist within the current scholarly publishing
paradigm. DOI: 10.3138/jsp.44-4-001

Is the E-Reader Mightier? Direct Publishing and Entry Barriers

Jeremy D. Camacho  


First-time authors face a choice: Do they pursue traditional publication
through major publishing houses, or do they instead utilize online direct
publishing? This article examines that choice through the economic lens of
entry barriers and considers which barriers block first-time writers from
their interests, be they financial or otherwise. The barriers in traditional
publishing include the agency process and the acceptance process. The
barriers in direct publishing include limited promotion, limited market, and
limited editing. This article determines that, more often than not,
traditional publishing satisfies a first-time author's interests more so
than direct publishing. DOI: 10.3138/jsp.44-4-002

Science and Yiddish Don't Mix: Really?

Eli Maor           


Mention the word 'Yiddish' and images of literary works-novels and plays,
short stories and drama, and works on Jewish history-instantly come to mind.
But science? Certainly this was not a subject most East European Jews were
interested in-or so we have been led to believe. It thus came to the author
as a surprise that books on science have, indeed, been published in Yiddish,
sometimes translated from other languages but just as often written
originally in Yiddish. These works range from popular exposition of
scientific subjects to full-length textbooks intended for use by elementary
and secondary students at Jewish schools. The author's interest in this
aspect of Yiddish books soon led him to collect them. What he found was a
true eye opener. DOI: 10.3138/jsp.44-4-003

Publishing in Educational Research Journals: Are Graduate Students

Jordana Garbati, Boba Samuels        


Professional collaboration in academia is valued because it is believed to
encourage the generation and synthesis of ideas, to enhance workplace
environments, and to comprise a key element in mentoring practices.
Collaboration in writing is often of two types: formal co-authorship or
informal commentary on colleagues' work. Formal co-authorship is a topic
that usually draws more attention for its problems and potential
controversies than for its putative benefits. In our study, we examined
professional academic co-authorship. Focusing on the field of education, we
identified four research sub-fields (general education, educational
psychology, language studies, and literacy studies) and analysed academic
peer-reviewed journals from each of these sub-fields to establish how much
collaboration exists in published articles. We then examined the extent to
which graduate students are co-authors in these publications and what role
this collaboration takes. Implications for collaboration with and between
graduate students are discussed. DOI: 10.3138/jsp.44-4-004

The Current State of Open Access in Journals Sponsored by the China
Association for Science and Technology

Ju-fang Shao, Hui-yun Shen, Si-long Zhang, et al.    


The open-access (OA) journals among the 1003 journals sponsored by the China
Association for Science and Technology (CAST) were identified. Information
about the following aspects of the journals were collected and analysed:
when each journal was established, its publication cycle, its system model,
its region, its discipline, the time between an issue's publication and the
posting of the online version, the number of issues that have been made OA,
and length of time that it has had an OA policy. On the basis of these
results, problems associated with OA journals sponsored by CAST were found
and relevant approaches that can promote OA publication in China were
recommended. DOI: 10.3138/jsp.44-4-005

Auditing Social Science and Humanities Journals: The View of an Editor in a
Malaysian Research University

Radha M. K. Nambiar 


It is common practice for a university to have many journals located within
different schools and faculties in order to help young researchers publish
their work and gain confidence in their writing abilities. The focus of this
paper is with the journals that are not listed in databases and cater only
to academics within a school to serve as an avenue for publication. When the
National University of Malaysia was accorded research university status
recently, publications and research became an important indicator of the
performance of the university. This led to a new demand for publications in
indexed journals and for increasing citations. Hence, it was timely to
conduct an 'in-house evaluation' of journals within the university, focusing
particularly on the social sciences and humanities journals. An evaluation
was conducted using the basic criteria for journals included in the database
Scopus, and measures were then proposed to improve the journals. This
exercise was meant to help the journals that had a long publishing history
to rise to the challenges of being scholarly journals in an era of
competitiveness, databases and indexes. DOI: 10.3138/jsp.44-4-006

The Status of Peer-Reviewed Research in Sports and Recreation Management: A
Critique of Current Practices

N. Jonas Ohrberg       


When analysing the current practices in peer-reviewed research and scholarly
publications in sports and recreation management, one is required to
consider the purpose and audience of the research. The author of the present
study suggests that there is a significant gap between the research
community of scholars and the practitioners in sports and recreation
management. The relationship that currently exists between the author of
peer-reviewed works and the reader of the scholarly publications must be
redefined. The review of the research and publication process will establish
that the research and publication of scholarly manuscripts must be relevant
to the daily practices and operations in the professions of sports and
recreation management. DOI: 10.3138/jsp.44-4-007
