Question

She argues that 'when many successful scientists boast dozens, even hundreds, of research papers to their name, calls for more “quality over quantity” in publication can appear to ring rather hollow.
Thus, to ensure quality in the paper publications churned out from dozens of academic journals, she gave the above suggestion. What do you think about her suggestion? Would it improve the rigor of science or slow down the pace of scientific development?
Kindly share your interesting views on this issue. Thanks
Relevant answer
Answer
It depends on whether a researcher is an open-minded or otherwise. Restricting an open-minded researcher to publish a single study per annum will limit scientific propagation and technological advancement. In fact, it will take us back to pre-information explosion period where only a tiny fraction of scholars was allowed to contribute to the growth of knowledge. By any physical laws, this is impossible. It seems to restrict human thinking thereby limiting human intelligence and accelerating or retarding machine intelligence. This idea will be detrimental especially if looked at from the high scaled up of global problems like health emergency, global warming, etc. There's a paradigm shift from publishing to perish to share or perish nowadays, which implies the negative consequences will be greater than the benefits to derive from. The only thing to think in this regard is the review process: it has to measure many variables such as quality, validity, reliability, replicability, etc in quantity. Narrowing down the growth of knowledge to just one paper per year will have many consequences on psychology, sociology, economy, geography, environment, health, technology, etc. of the global population. It will limit critical thinking, reading, reflection, among others, which is detriment to the growth and development of scholarship unless proven otherwise in the future. Thinking in this way is epistemophobia

In my recent manuscript submission to a Springer Nature journal, I have come across Research Square (Preprint service provider associated with Springer Nature) which is allowing & encouraging me to publish the manuscript under consideration as a Preprint. My question is, If I publish it as Preprint, in the event of rejection of my manuscript from the journal, will it affect my subsequent submission to a different journal? (i.e. will my own preprint be caught and counted for determining the similarity index by the next journal house)

Most PhD students think about disseminating their work worldwide. Don't you think that each form of publication has pros (articles are quickly read while books are highly rewarding...) as well as challenges (articles are less impactful while books take a longer time to get published)? What would you prefer most?
Relevant answer
Answer
My main advice is to check which is recognised more by your academic institution or employer (or both). Or your potential employer. My experience is that my University (and I have heard of others) who prefer you have published lots of journal articles (in well recognised journals, of course, like we talked about) but my employer gives you more credit, it seems, for publishing books.
I totally agree with Senapathy Marisennayya that it is very important that your work is recognised properly whether you do one type or the other (book(s) or journal article(s)).

I got inspired by the reading of a short paper written by Jonathan Tennant, entitled “Web of Science and Scopus are not global databases of knowledge” (2020). There I heard about some databases for the first time, like the Garuda portal or African Journals Online. It got me wondering: what else is out there and I do not know because my point of view is limited to the languages I speak and the place I live in?
So, my idea here is that we can share academic databases that we are familiar with and perhaps are not very well known in other countries or continents. Where do you do your research?
Here is a list of interesting links that I have collected, without strict criteria, reflecting my point of view as a Brazilian researcher in the field of Psychology.

Are you interested in the application of complex systems to the global history of humankind? I'm working on such a project, and I'm interested in discussions with like-minded people.
I published several articles on that in "The Complex Systems" journal (thecomplexsystems.com). A short overview of my work is in my blog (vtorvich.com) and the description of my book "Subsurface History of Humanity: Direction of History" on Amazon.
Relevant answer
Answer
All classifications are up to people.
Everybody will tell you that the history of humanity started around 5,150 years ago. Of course, not the same wording would be used. The phrase would be like this. The history of mankind is recorded history. In other words, our history began only when humanity invented writing.
The reason is simple and very convincing. The magic word is convenience. It is much easier to work with historical facts and artifacts if you have written records about them. It is hard to work with only archeological or similar data. The history with existed written records is a comfort zone for everybody. Any choice of the beginning of the history of humankind as a date before first writing will throw researchers and the public out of this comfort zone.
When did the Agricultural Revolution happen? Well, it began many thousands of years before writing was invented. If the history of mankind began in 3150 BC, then that revolution is thrown from the history of humanity into prehistory.
I consider humankind's history, as the one, which started in 42000 BC. Why exactly at this date?

One of the most common methods is to submit the manuscript to an editorial (i.e. Springer, Elsevier, etc.). However, what if you want to publish a thesis in a book/chapter book or if you have a large study with an interesting/different approach? What would be the best alternative?
I would appreciate it if someone could give some options (in English or Spanish), indexes, (perhaps price), and an estimate of waiting times.

Because, you have been already awarded the degree which means the thesis as a whole has been approved. That should not be difficult at least now when the technology as advanced so much. You need to consult an expert for converting the thesis portion you wish to publish and go ahead with. Shouldn't be difficult at all. All the best.

This question is based on the following facts (publish or perish):
"Do you feel overwhelmed by the number of research papers in your field?
Do you wonder if you’re missing key ideas that could be critical for your research program? Does it feel like the deluge is only getting worse?
You’re not imagining things. According to research from the University of Ottawa, in 2009 we passed the 50 million mark in terms of the total number of science papers published since 1665, and approximately 2.5 million new scientific papers are published each year.
What’s driving this publication explosion?
At its most basic level, we’ve seen a substantial increase in the total number of academic journals. As of 2014 there were approximately 28,100 active scholarly peer-reviewed journals. Add to this the increasing number of predatory or fake scientific journals, which produce high volumes of poor-quality research, and you have a veritable jungle of journals to wade through.
Another key factor is the sheer number of publishing scientists worldwide, which is increasing at a rate of approximately 4-5% per year. In British Columbia and Alberta alone, we’ve seen the conversion of more than seven colleges to universities in the past decade, and with these changes come new pressures on faculty to publish.
This pressure to “publish or perish”—and the increased competition amongst this growing pool of scientists—has resulted in some researchers becoming what’s termed “salami slicers.”
They divide papers into the least publishable unit in order to lengthen their publication list, increase the chances of being cited, and increase the opportunity to publish in journals with a high impact factor. This further contributes to the volume of papers published."
Relevant answer
Answer
I think and I am sorry to say this is not healthy because all or most of us are scholars or academicians and our universities only related our careers upgrading to publishing the papers and this is in fact very away from the true skills and experiences that we ought to have it and also to just have the required number of published papers that may be low quality ... but only to have the required number only to upgrade ...

What is more prestigious and better for the career, to publish academic books with an established university press such as Cambridge and Princeton or with other big commercial publishers such as Sage and Routledge? What are advantages and disadvantages?
Relevant answer
Answer
Hans - I suppose that the 'simple' answer would be that the larger the company, the more likely it is to be more widely marketed, circulated and read - and potentially more cited. Unlike journals, texts are not ranked and so the answer does have some subjectivity associated with it. That said, some of the university press publishers i.e. Cambridge Univerity Press and Oxford University Press are well established and can be considered equally prestigious and 'mainstream' than some of the other publishing houses you mention. That said, there are a few that that are probably 'ranked' higher than most - such as Elsevier.

I'm reading this book and I'm really interested in translating few pages from a section of the book into my mother tongue language. Now i have already started but then i realized maybe it is not ethical nor legal to do so even for translating "few pages" from the book without asking for permission from the original author.
Relevant answer
Answer
A few pages (6) is too much to reproduce without permission, or without at least checking how much text the publishing house deems to be permissible. I believe that the general maximum allowed is a couple of hundred words without putting in a specific request. You should contact the publishing house to ask: Search for the web site of the publishing house, then look for a link: "Permissions". Nowadays such a link will often allow you to put in a request and obtain the appropriate authorisation automatically and immediately, but as you are requesting the right to reproduce a substantial amount of translated text, I would suggest that you provide all details and await a response (do take a screenshot of the request). You will need to provide information relating to the eventual publication, and some of this, you might not know as yet. I like to cover all bases by contacting the author as well as one does not always receive a response from publishing houses and I still await permission to reproduce an image from a request put in five years ago (we didn't use that figure!). I'd suggest a web search to find the author's contact information. This is often a couple of boxes on a website, but don't be discouraged – authors tend to be quick to respond and considerably more interesting to communicate with than an automated permissions service! If you are stuck awaiting permissions that never seem to come from the automated service, the author can forward an email for you or provide you with the email for a direct contact, whereupon you will be able to enjoy watching your email pass from one person to another until it eventually lands on the desk of the right person (whose first piece of advice will be to use the automated service that has failed to produce results!). Corresponding with the author frequently results in an interesting exchange, and it can provide additional unpublished information of value when presenting the work or discussing it with colleagues. Good luck!

I received an email from Nova press, NY with a request to provide research or review chapter(s) for a book cooperation within the scope of my research interests. I would be interested, if you have i) experience with this kind of publication and ii) where are the benefits in terms of dissemination and/or citations etc.?
As books usually are not made open access, I do only see a benefit for the publisher as they earn money with this. The authors are not paid for their work and have no share on the revenue... so why should I cooperate? Prestige??
Many thanks for your input,
Richard
Relevant answer
Answer
Scientific books are collections of chapters=reviews. Standalone reviews are better in terms of dissemination. But the words "book" and "chapter" are magic spells. So every sincere academic-ladder climber wants to have a chapter or two in their lists of publications. Books are usually not "open access," but they are often "open, sesame."

Dear PhD students,
Some parasitic and predatory publishers will offer you to publish your thesis for free and without prior examination and peer review. It's all about scam. Some are already registered on the Dolos list (https://www.professeur-alexandre-georges.info/dolos-list), like VDM Publishing (OmniScriptum) and Lambert Academic Publishing, but stay cautious. Publishing your thesis with a predatory publisher will never be positive for your work. If you have already published, don't worry, it can happen to well-established researchers. If you have made a commitment to publish with this type of publisher, retract and, if they refuse, do not hesitate to contact my office at:
The Dolos list is a resource designed to help researchers, students, and journalists to determine which publishers or journals are serious and which are not. My team will try to provide the most suitable solution and will not hesitate to intervene.

There must be certain stylistic features in writing that differentiate native from non-native standards. Perhaps non-native writers can improve upon their writing styles in order to enrich competition in research paper publishing.
Relevant answer
Answer
Something quite annoying is the inconsistency in the definition of "native speaker" between journals. I personally experienced cases of American journals complaining about the English used by British authors, and vice-versa. It's also common to see complaints made by American or British reviewers about the English used by people from other native anglophone countries, especially in Africa. So, at least part of the problem may be attributed to prejudice.

After completing some research on systems thinking across various medical and health professions education programs, colleagues and I decided to develop a monograph to help educators teach and assess systems thinking. We have found it a bit more challenging to publish a monograph as opposed to a research article -- journals want brief manuscripts; book publishers want full textbooks. Some colleagues have suggested self-publishing but I am concerned that this might not be a credible/respected route to pursue as a researcher and academic. Would love to hear what others think.

Answer
A scientific answer to the question about the quality of Nova Science Publishers can be found in several published bibliometric essays of mine, most recently in
Tausch, Arno, The Market Power of Global Scientific Publishing Companies in the Age of Globalization: An Analysis Based on the OCLC Worldcat (June 16, 2018). Available at SSRN: https://ssrn.com/abstract=3197632 or http://dx.doi.org/10.2139/ssrn.3197632 (forthcoming in the Journal of Globalization Studies).
This article evaluates tendencies and trends of the global academic publishing industry, vital for any reasonable long-term publication strategy planning in research. Such analyses are made possible today by the OCLC Worldcat. Our multivariate attempt, combining Worldcat global library circulation figures of publisher companies with results from earlier publisher ranking studies, is based on factor analysis of 32 variables, and our promax factor analytical model establishes that there are eight factors of global publisher impact, explaining almost 86% of total variance:
1. overall global standing of the company
2. company as a factor on the market
3. company impact on the global political and economic debate
4. successfully distributing best-sellers
5. impact on the scholarly community
6. successfully distributing production to more than 50 global Worldcat libraries
7. output during the last 5 years
8. outstanding academic quality
Of the 51 companies with complete data under investigation here, the following companies are classified in the upper half: Oxford University Press; Springer; Cambridge University Press; Routledge; World Bank; Princeton University Press; Elsevier; CRC Press; University of Chicago Press; University of California Press; Palgrave Macmillan; MIT Press; Yale University Press; University of North Carolina Press; De Gruyter; Wiley-Blackwell; Kluwer Academic Publishers; University of Pennsylvania Press; Johns Hopkins University Press; Brill; Nova Science Publishers; University of Illinois Press; Duke University Press; University of Washington Press; and Edward Elgar.
Scientists, wanting to get global audiences, are well advised to publish with those companies; and journal editors, wanting to get a global distribution for their journals, are equally well advised to cooperate with them.
SSRN is run by the Social Science Research Network in New York, associated with Elsevier.
Other articles, comparing Nova's performance in a scientific manner, were published in:
Tausch, A. (2011). On the Global Impact of Selected Social-Policy Publishers in More Than 100 Countries 1. Journal of Scholarly Publishing, 42(4), 476-513.
Tausch, A. (2016), ‘The global publishing trajectory of a European political science community: indices, trends, and implications’ (‘La trayectoria global de publicaciones de una Comunidad Europea de Ciencia Política: índices, tendencias e implicaciones’) Entelequia. Revista Interdisciplinar, Publicado el 26 noviembre, 2016 in Epistemología, Número 19. Available at: https://revistaentelequia.wordpress.com/category/numero-19/page/2/?order=asc , as a working paper also at my site in Researchgate

A bibliometric analysis).‘ Bibliotheksdienst, March 2017: 339 – 374. as a working paper also at my site in Researchgate
All these studies came to the conclusion that Nova Science Publishers is to be ranked in the middle range of serious global academic publishers.

Dear Bob,
You have another book - from the edition in 1717 - in the Biblioteca de Montserrat. I give you the link for the research in English: http://www.bibliotecademontserrat.net/cat/eng/index.php
And maybe you can find information in the "Archivo Histórico de Protocolos de Madrid" (http://www.madrid.org/archivos/index.php/quienes-somos/conocenos/archivo-historico-de-protocolos), because in the wills, buy of house, heritages, they mentioned sometimes the books that the people have. The "Protocolos" are useful, in Spanish Literature, to find information of Ancient Writters - Lope de Vega, Cervantes, for example -  or Important People (Colón, the Catholic Queen), because you can find historical documents from 1504 since 1916.  There are "Archivos Históricos de Protocolos" in other Spanish cities, like Valencia, Sevilla, Barcelona...
And the Spanish Consulates have too "funciones notariales". In the pages 25-27 you have some informations about the dates when  a country had the Spanish consulate: http://www.madrid.org/archivos/images/ACTIVIDADES/PUBLICACIONES/Guia_ArchivoHistoricoProtocolosMadrid.pdf
You can see an exemple of the information you can extract of these "protocolos" in this paper. The auctor explains a "Carta de dote" ("Dote" is the name of the things that man or woman contributes to the marriage )  of the XVIIIth Century and you have the reference of the book of Arredondo in the page 44: http://biblioteca2.uclm.es/biblioteca/Ceclm/ARTREVISTAS/Cem/CEM37_Bienes_Barrio.pdf
I hope this information was useful to you and tell me, please, if you need help for a Spanish translate or another information or another management in Spain.
Good look in your research!

I also wish to review and compare the statistics-finding tools and resources available.
