More on reforming publication from Björn and Marcus

February 15, 2013

This blog post in BMJ blogs  begins with a review of the critique of the impact factor as more of a distorting factor.  Then, suggests a solution: bringing publication back to the institutions, now that this isn’t prohibitively hard (what with the net and the cloud and infinite storage space). The old journals could then instead focus on reviews, research digests and commentary (they use Science and Nature as models for that part). Something to consider.
