Abstract

تشكل قضية النشر الدولي أهمية كبيرة لمؤسسات التعليم العالي؛ إذ يُعد معياراً جوهرياً من معايير تصنيف الجامعات عالمياً وأحد مؤشرات جودة ورصانة البحوث التي يقوم بها أعضاؤها. ونظراً لانخفاض معدل النشر العلمي بتخصصات العلوم الإنسانية والاجتماعية، فقد هدفت الدراسة الحالية إلى رصد معوقات النشر الدولي لدى أعضاء هيئة تدريس كليات هذا القطاع بجامعة المنيا من وجهة نظرهم، وتعرف أبرز مقترحاتهم بشأن التغلب على تلك المعوقات وسبل تذليلها. وقد شملت تلك الصعوبات أربعة جوانب هي: اتجاه أعضاء هيئة التدريس نحو النشر الدولي، ومعوقات متعلقة بمهارات أعضاء هيئة التدريس الأكاديمية، ومعوقات متعلقة بالبيئة المؤسسية، ومعوقات متعلقة بالدوريات العلمية الدولية، بالإضافة لبُعد خامس تناول مقترحات العينة بشأن تنشيط حركة النشر الدولي. ولتحقيق هدف الدراسة، تم استخدام المنهج الوصفي؛ الذي تم توظيفه من خلال؛ عرض إطار نظري تناول مفهوم النشر العلمي وطبيعته، وأهميته، وعوائده على الباحث ومؤسسات التعليم العالي والمجتمع، وطرق النشر العلمي وأوعيته، بالإضافة لعرض المعايير الدولية لتصنيف الدوريات العلمية، ومقاييس القيمة العلمية للبحوث المنشورة. كما تم بناء استبانة تألفت من 55 مفردة موزعة على خمس أبعاد، ثُمَّ تم تطبيقها على عينة من أعضاء هيئة التدريس بلغ قوامها (146) عضوًا. وقد تم تحليل البيانات التي تم الحصول عليها باستخدام برنامج الحزمة الإحصائية (SPSS) الإصدار (19)، وتوصلت النتائج إلى تحقق كل بُعد من أبعاد الاستبانة بدرجة عالية. ثُمَّ اختتمت الدراسة بتقديم بعض التوصيات والإجراءات المقترحة لتذليل الصعوبات التي تواجه أعضاء هيئة التدريس وسبل تجاوزها.

Publishing scientific research is very important in contributing to the knowledge of a discipline and in sharing research findings among scientists. Based on the quantity and quality of publications, one can evaluate the research capacity of a researcher or the research performance of a university or a country. However, the number of quality publications in Vietnam is very low in comparison with those in the other countries in the region or in the world, especially in the fields of social sciences and humanities. Employing both quantitative and qualitative approaches, the current study investigates university lecturers’ attitudes towards research and publication and the obstacles to local and international publication at one of the main universities in social sciences and humanities in Vietnam. The study found the main barriers to publication are funding and time for research and publication, among many other obstacles. From the analysis of the data, the study would also argue that lecturers’ obstacles to publication may vary across faculties (or disciplines), ages, qualifications, education, research and publication experience. The findings in this study may be applied to other institutions in Vietnam or in other countries where English is used as a foreign language.

Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the reasons for the lack of research attention paid to the Middle East (ME) and Africa regions. In particular, this study seeks to identify the reasons for and implications of the paucity of ME- and Africa-based studies in high-quality international journals in the marketing field with a specific focus on the challenges in conducting and publishing research on these regions. Design/methodology/approach – The authors conducted a systematic review of the literature on the ME and Africa regions to identify papers published in 23 high-quality marketing, international business, and advertising journals. This search resulted in 301 articles, among which 125 articles were based on primary or secondary data collected from a local source in those regions. The authors of these 125 articles constitute the Delphi study sample. These academics provided input in an effort to reach a consensus regarding the two proposed models of academic research in both regions. Findings – This paper differs from previous studies, where academic freedom emerged as the most important inhibitor to conducting and publishing research. The most frequently mentioned challenges in conducting research in Africa were access to data, data collection issues, diversity of the region, and lack of research support infrastructure. For the ME, the most often described challenges included validity and reliability of data, language barriers, data collection issues, and availability of a network of researchers. Editors’ and reviewers’ low interest and limited knowledge were ranked high in both regions. South Africa, Israel, and Turkey emerged as outliers, in which research barriers were less challenging than in the rest of the two regions. The authors attribute this difference to the high incidence of US-trained or US-based scholars originating from these countries. Originality/value – To the best of the knowledge, no marketing studies have discussed the problems of publishing in high-quality international journals of marketing, international business, and advertising for either region. Thus, most of the issues the authors discuss in this paper offer new insightful results while supplementing previous research on the challenges of conducting and publishing research on specific world regions.

The decades leading to the third millennium was marked with concerted efforts by governments to raise their knowledge generation and contribution profile in the community of nations. Thus, all kinds of financial and promotional incentives have been offered to academics and researchers to publish papers in international journals, particularly ISI journals. It is argued that quantity and quality of articles published in ISI journals is an indication of scientific capabilities of a country and a yardstick for assessing its development. This research study aims to identify barriers that academics face in publishing papers in ISI social/humanity science journals. A questionnaire based on extensive literature review and a series of unstructured interviews was developed and tested. A stratified sampling method was used to collect data from academics of four social/humanity science faculties of a provincial university in the northwest of Iran. The findings revealed that respondent's perceived lack of proficiency in a foreign language, poor information technology infrastructure and inadequate access to international scientific databases and uncontrollable factors related to the nature of social science disciplines and political climate as the major barriers that prevent or de-motivate them to publish in ISI journals. The research findings were discussed and concluded, and recommendations were made to reduce or remove barriers to publishing in ISI journals.

Our purpose for this article is to provide suggestions on how to get your high quality research published from the perspectives of reviewers. First, good writing is good thinking, and you are much more likely to succeed when you combine good writing with sound research. We then offer an eight-step method of reviewing that may help the author better understand how to present and understand the research. Next, we describe ways to identify high quality journals, including acceptance rates, impact factor, Eigenfactors, and Article Influence scores. In the following section, we address common criteria used to rate articles, possible decisions, and how to revise the manuscript in response to reviewers’ comments. We present an example table of responses to reviewers’ critiques. We conclude with further advice for more novice researchers. Become a reviewer to help you better understand the process and peers’ expectations. Highlight the caliber of your research by citing journal metrics when being considered for promotion or hiring. Finally, frame negative reviews as an opportunity to improve your work and keep trying to publish your research despite criticisms.
