The 62 page report was disclosed yesterday. Page 29 shows worrying and decreasing reviewer completion rates that may be associated to a reviewer fatigue effect. This means that the "Waiting game" https://www.nature.com/news/does-it-tak ... ch-1.19320 will become worse and in future authors will have to wait more time to see their papers reviewed

Assunto: 4 editors explain "How to revise, and revise really well, for premier academic journals"

Abstract: Most of the premier academic journals in all fields routinely have rejection rates of 80%, 95%, or higher. All journals prefer articles that make significant contributions to the field. Revising a manuscript and responding properly to the comments of reviewers and editors often is challenging. This article discusses how to revise effectively a manuscript according to the (minor or major) comments of reviewers and editors for premier academic journals. We provide a series of tips for helping the authors in their endeavor, making the process less arduous and improving the possibility of a positive outcome.

Assunto: Is Australia putting Prof. Ioannidis academic reward suggestions into practice ?

In a 2014 paper John Ioannidis full professor of medicine at Stanford University suggested a change in the academic reward system http://journals.plos.org/plosmedicine/a ... ed.1001747

and some months ago in a UK Parliament committee some colleagues testified saying that:
“the whole system of academic research is currently permeated by perverse incentives…that need to be removed or at least diminished” (email below)

More recently Amanda Salis, Professor of medicine at the University of Sydney wrote the following:
“I have observed a change of culture at the National Health and Medical Research Council-NHMRC and at research institutes in the past 5-10 years that has encouraged the addition of peer review activity to research applications. It is no longer enough to just be doing great research; you also need to demonstrate that you are contributing to your profession more broadly. Peer review is an important means by which researchers can contribute to the growth of their profession, and demonstrating that you have done a certain amount of peer review (via a verifiable means such as Publons) proves that you are indeed making contributions to the greater good of research”.

P.S - By Saturday Publons will reach 300.000 reviewers, the 200.000 mark was reached in September of 2017 and the 100K in December of 2016. This means that before the end of this year Publons will have half a million registered reviewers
