Call for Papers - Current and Emergent Issues in Publication Ethics in Scholarly Publishing

Journal of Scholarly Publishing

Deadline: September 1, 2022

The Journal of Scholarly Publishing welcomes submissions for a special issue on evolving issues in publication integrity in scholarly publishing. This special issue of JSP will explore a number of the research and publication integrity issues, which researchers experience in the context of the competitive nature of scholarly publishing, and will also explore safe guards to protect and advance integrity in the research and dissemination of new knowledge.

The first two decades of scholarly publishing in the twenty-first century have seen a radical shift in the dissemination of scholarly research through publication. There are many variables contributing to this shift—including increases in the number and types of universities, increases in university ranking systems, increased intervention of governments in funding—and contributing to corollary pressure to compete for research funding and to disseminate research findings.

Such increased competition has subsequently led to the growth of journals generally with an emphasis on journal quality, impact factors, and citation rates. It has also led to the introduction of new sources of corruption in scholarly publishing through the introduction of predatory publishing (fake fee-for-service for-profit journals without proper standards, policies, or procedures) and the availability of papermills (companies creating fake research articles for fee to be sold to researchers).
