Statement on Best Practices in Journal Publishing

A series of statements prepared by the American Philosophical Association.

Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals

Previously know as the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts (URMs), these recommendations are published by the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE). ICMJE developed these recommendations to review best practice and ethical standards in the conduct and reporting of research and other material published in medical journals, and to help authors, editors, and others involved in peer review and biomedical publishing create and distribute accurate, clear, reproducible, unbiased medical journal articles.

COPE’s Core Practices

COPE’s Core Practices have been created to assist editors of scholarly journals and publishers/owners – as well as other parties, such as institutions and funders, albeit less directly – in their endeavour to preserve and promote the integrity of the scholarly record through policies and practices that reflect the current best principles of transparency and integrity.

Publishing Best Practices

The resources, compiled by Columbia University Libraries/Information Services, are meant to guide journal editors on publishing best practices, including ethical publishing standards and strategies for new and incoming editors.

Special issue on predatory publishers

A special issue, published in June 2017 in journal Biochemia Medica, called ‘Research integrity corner: Special issue on predatory journals’. There are 5 papers in this special section.

What I learned from predatory publishers

This article is a first-hand account of [Jeffrey Beall’s] work identifying and listing predatory publishers from 2012 to 2017. Predatory publishers use the gold (author pays) open access model and aim to generate as much revenue as possible, often foregoing a proper peer review. The paper details how predatory publishers came to exist and shows how they were largely enabled and condoned by the open-access social movement, the scholarly publishing industry, and academic librarians.

Beall’s Litter

A blog post from Michael Eisen’s blog ‘It is NOT junk’ explaining why he thinks that Jeffrey Beall was out to discredit open access and not just “predatory” publishers.
