Hello All.
Many thanks in advance for the upcoming answers to my query. So I just wanted to know if anyone has knowledge about if there is any publication fees/charges for sending and publishing (if accepted) article in The Journal of Rorschachiiana- the Scientific Publication of The International Society of the Rorchach?
any information will be of great help.
Thanks and regards,

Answer
The journal “Rorschachiana” (https://www.hogrefe.com/us/journal/rorschachiana ) is a subscription-based journal in which you can publish free of charge. They offer an open access option which is only free of costs for researchers from (certain) German institutes otherwise they charge 3000 USD (https://www.hogrefe.com/us/resources/publishing-with-hogrefe/for-journals/openmind ).
But again when you choose for the ‘normal’ subscription-based option then it is free of costs.

Dear fellow scientists, here's sth that puzzles me at present: In virtually all research repositories that I know, PDF documents dominate, even though they are a 1990s format targeted at bringing classical paper documents to screen, without being resonsive not linked. Back in the 90ies, though, Tim Berners-Lee proposed another format with hypertext capabilities for scientific exchange. Why do paper-page-style PDF still dominate so much? Do you have ideas? Or do you know about other formats that may exist out there in communities beyond mine (chemistry/physics/materials science)?

I have been asked to submit a paper on a special issue of Genes- MDPI. The impact factor of the journal is showing to be 3.4 but I saw conflicting articles about the MDPI journals being a predatory one. Though the editor of the issue is a reputed person in the field, I am bit confused about the journal in general. What are your thoughts?
Relevant answer
Answer
I think this is a complicated question. I did a quick search and found the IF to be even higher (1) than the figure you quoted. That means that journal is cited a lot, if that's useful to you. But, as we know, and has been discussed in other parts of this platform, IF is not the only factor to consider. There are many other metrics used.
Personally, I would not be able to afford the amount of the fees that they charge so publishing in that journal would never be an option for me.

Hey everyone, I am looking for a comprehensive overview of all variables that the big five personality traits (OCEAN) have been correlated with. I know some isolated reviews for the big five and depression or academic success but I was wondering if there is one overview of all correlations reported in scientific publications?
Relevant answer
Answer
As this is of interest to me too, I have done a quick search on PsychINFO and Google Scholar and did not find anything on the first few pages. I think this may be too broad a scope for a single paper published within academic journals that typically have stringent page/word limits.
This may be a good opportunity for you to conduct a review of literature reviews (e.g., systematic reviews, scoping reviews, meta-analyses) to look at the different domains you are interested in investigating in association with the big five. I know that research on the big five ranges from educational psychology, occupational-industrial psychology, psychopathology, political science, cognitive psychology, and others... It may be useful for you to specify keywords for a literature search to find the types of studies you are most interested in.
As a final thought, although this may not have been done within peer-reviewed articles, it is possible that there are books on the Big 5 - Theory and Practice that have overviews of the different domains where it has been applied. This may be useful as a starting point.

Theoretically, there should be as few restrictions as possible in such matters in the world of science. Science should develop in an unhampered way. Whether less restrictions and regulations can be developed to a greater extent by innovative solutions.
On the other hand, the more authors who have written a specific publication together, the more difficult it is to objectively evaluate the contribution of individual co-authors to the creation of a specific publication. There are several pages of scientific articles that have been written by over 100 authors. Usually, these are also members of research teams for large-scale research projects.
In addition, in the last dozen or so years, research has shown that the quantitative proportion of single-author scientific texts is falling relative to the total of scientific publications being produced. Therefore, more scientific multi-authorial publications have been created in recent years in comparison to single-author ones. What are the reasons?
In the light of the above, the following questions arise:
Why do more and more scientists prefer to publish in multi-author scientific texts than single-author ones? Is the main determinant of the increase of established research teams, whose members conduct similar or the same research projects and jointly publish research results?
In addition, new questions arise in connection with the development of new information technologies:
What is the importance of using the internet to popularize scientific knowledge? Does online information globalization have its share in this matter? Can publication in multi-author texts increase the scope in terms of popularizing specific scientific knowledge, developed new research concepts, results of research carried out, etc. using new online media, including online science portals? Is this the probability of developing scientific cooperation on a national, but also international and global scale? Are there any opportunities for the citation of scientific publications?
Do you agree with me on the above matter?

In experimental studies of any processes, it is impossible to qualitatively and quickly create an installation, conduct experiments, process them, and generalize the results obtained. Therefore, it is beneficial to work as a team. And you can also write articles together, delimiting responsibility for the paragraphs of the article.

How to obtain currently necessary information from Big Data database systems for the needs of specific scientific research and necessary to carry out economic, business and other analyzes?
Of course, the right data is important for scientific research. However, in the present era of digitalization of various categories of information and creating various libraries, databases, constantly expanding large data sets stored in database systems, data warehouses and Big Data database systems, it is important to develop techniques and tools for filtering large data sets in those databases data to filter out of terabytes of data only information that is currently needed for the purpose of conducted scientific research in a given field of knowledge, for the purposes of obtaining answers to a given research question and for business needs, eg after connecting these databases to Business Intelligence analytical platforms.

Answer
Respected Doctor
Big data has three characteristics as follows:
1-Volume
It is the volume of data extracted from a source, which determines the value and capabilities of the data to be classified as big data, and by the year 2020, cyberspace will contain approximately 40,000 megabytes of data ready for analysis and information extraction.
2-Variety
It means the diversity of extracted data, which helps users, whether they are researchers or analysts, to choose the appropriate data for their field of research and includes structured data in databases and unstructured data (such as: images, clips, audio recordings, videos, SMS, call logs, and data). Maps (GPS), and require time and effort to prepare them in a suitable form for processing and analysis.
3-Velocity
It means the speed of producing and extracting data and sending it to cover the demand for it. Speed is a crucial element in making a decision based on this data, and it is the time we take from the moment this data arrives to the moment the decision is made based on it.
There are many tools and techniques that are used to analyze big data, such as: Hadoop, Map Reduce, HPCC, but Hadoop is one of the most famous of these tools. Big data is on several devices and then distributes the processing process to these devices to speed up the processing result and is returned or called as a single package. Tools that deal with big data consist of three main parts:
1- Data mining tools
2- Data Analysis Tools
3- Tools for displaying results (Dashboard).
Its use also varies statistically according to the research objectives (improving education, effectiveness of decision-making, military benefit, economic development, health management ... etc.).

Thanks
Ender
Relevant answer
Answer
Of course, proper justification would be required. Here are some scenarios where I would go or not go for deconvolution:
1) I expect two peaks but experimentally get one. I would try deconvolution.
2) I expect one peak and I get one peak. I would not try deconvolution.
3) I expect one peak but get a broad peak or a main peak with a hump or something that cannot pass as a single peak. I would go for deconvolution and then try to find the origin of the mysterious extra peak. Maybe do some more experiments.
For a completely new material, theoretical/computational studies may give you some idea about how many peaks to expect and in which energy range. Here is an example of computational UV absorption spectra of a core-shell nanomaterial in the following paper:

In recent years there has been a growing demand for the recognition of our work as a peer reviewer since this is the most important step to guarantee the quality of scientific publications. Unfortunately, for a long time this work has been anonymous and scarcely recognized in our curriculum and as a criterion for hiring and permanence.
Recently, Publon, the platform of Web of Science, has begun to register, in addition to the metrics of the number of publications and citations, a separate graphic for the peer reviews made in indexed journals. Although this could be still insufficient, I think it is an important step that should have influence on those who evaluate our academic activity.
The Publon website explains how to carry out this process. It's very simple
How do I add peer reviews to Publons?
Modified on: Fri, 12 Apr, 2019 at 1:53 PM
Publons allows you to add reviews performed for journals or conferences to your public profile (with the privacy settings you choose). We can then verify your reviews, which can be used in promotion and funding applications.
There are four simple ways to populate your review record on Publons: 
1. Add reviews performed for partnered journals
Reviews performed for partnered journals can be instantly added to your profile as you do them. Simply follow these steps:
  1. Check the box on the review submission form asking if you want to add a record of the review to Publons*
  2. Follow the link in the confirmation email we send you
  3. Done - the review record will be added to your profile subject to the journal's privacy policy.
We send you a confirmation email on purpose to make sure we never collect review records from people who accidentally checked the box in the review submission form.
We make this two-step process even easier. Simply turn on the 'Automatically add reviews from partnered journals" setting in your profile settings. With this setting enabled, you just need to check the box in the review submission form and you're done!
* This option appears in the peer-review submission system the journal uses, such as ScholarOne or Editorial Manager.
2. Send review receipts to reviews@publons.com
If you've reviewed for journals that are not yet partnered with Publons, you can still add verified records of those reviews to your profile.
  1. Search your inbox for any “Thank you for reviewing” emails that journal editors have sent you.
  2. Forward those emails to reviews@publons.com.
  3. Done!
Publons verifies these emails with the journal and adds the record to your profile (subject to the journal's privacy policy).
You can speed things up by adding the review using the form on your Private Dashboard first, and including the URL of the review in your email to reviews@publons.com.
To see exactly how to add reviews through reviews@publons.com, please watch the video below:
3. Enable auto-updates
Digging up old emails can take some time. So where we can, we’ll do the work for you! We work with our partners to look back at their review records for up to five years and update our users’ review history. Simply turn on the 'Automatically add reviews from partnered journals" setting in your profile settings and whenever we find a review, we'll add it to your profile and let you know. 
4. Add reviews through the forms on the site.
You’ll find the pre-publication review forms here. You can use these forms to add unverified pre-publication reviews which will appear on your profile with the privacy settings you specify.
Note that you are unable to create journal entries on Publons. If you would like to add a review for a journal not in our database through the forms on the site, please contact us with the journal title, URL and ISSN and any other relevant information and we'll add it for you.

Hi all,
I have submitted a paper for publication in June 2017 and I am wondering how long people generally wait? I submitted to a relatively small journal, Impact Factor ~ 1, and waited over 8 months for my first response from them (while their home page says it is generally 185 days ~ 6 months). I emailed them a couple of times during the process for a check, but they just said there is nothing they could do and they are waiting for the reviewer. I worked on the revisions promptly and returned them after a week. I was then told again that I would have to wait (this time about 2-3 weeks for a second revision). I got it back (2 months later) and it was conditionally accepted with more revisions requested. Again I worked on it promptly and re-submitted. Now it has been almost 3 months again. Prior they told me that revisions in this stage only take 2-3 weeks (and last time they had to switch out a reviewer because they took so long, after my requests). Now I am not sure what to do, it feels like their deadlines keep getting pushed back, and they say there's nothing they can do and there has not been an update since the day after I submitted it. Should I request new reviewers or is that just the way it is? It has been over 16 months since I originally submitted the article.

Dear Dr. Justin C Luong , thank you for this relevant discussion.
I agree with Dr. Daniel Adrian Doss .
In every profession there are people (say around 10 percent) with sadist tendency. Some reviewers think too much about themselves once they receive a manuscript from a journal. And, these kind of people like to project themselves as busiest persons in the world. Also, in the name of review, such reviewers suggest irrelevant opinions, suggestion or inputs.
It is unfortunate that we have few people among us. We can not identify from the name, religion, race or nationality of such people. They are everywhere. We have to omit, neglect, reject these reviewers/ journals.
I echo the words of Dr. Daniel Adrian Doss , you may consider withdrawing the paper, if possible.
I seek your kind attention to the fact that there are 90 percent of reviewers who are sincere, time bound, and offer genuine suggestions for the improvement of article quality. Reviewers are not paid. So, we should appreciate, promote, recommend, celebrate and respect these great people while boycotting & rejecting the remaining unworthy 10 percent of reviewers (related journals).

Do you know one of the secrets to publishing high-quality papers lies in well-designed and clear data figures? How do you make data graphs? Do you mainly rely on intuition, common sense and precedents in published papers to make them? This is largely an unscientific approach.
There is a scientific method based on visual search and pattern perception to guide us in designing good, clear data graphs. Visual perception is little known among researchers. Hardly anybody in the science community is talking about it. Once we have learned it, we will see a huge change in the quality of your research articles.

Dear Colleagues,
One question scratches a corner of my mind, so I decided to ask it here. Do you think that sometimes peer review (single or double-blind) is too harsh and too cruel against the manuscript? Even though I have managed to publish some papers so far, I still get the impression that the reviewers seek a perfect paper. Even if the reviews stick to the ethical boundaries, being too hard can discourage beginners like me. Also, I think sometimes they do it deliberately to show the superiority of their knowledge and experience. Similarly, some comments can be the comments that have been provided just for the sake of providing something. What do you think about it? Thank you beforehand.

1. Your research should be novel i.e., proposed methodology and findings never published in any journal.
2. Title should be attractive
3. Abstract should contain key findings of your research.
4. Manuscript should be grammatically sound.
5. Introduction should contain sufficient references to defend novelty of the work.

Conflict of interest in scientific publications
We often speak of conflicts of interest in the rules of publishers, but we do not cite the following case.
If the author and the reviewer are specialized in the same field and the author proposes a new method better than that of the reviewer (who, as the author himself published another method before), the reviewer will have an interest in refusing the article that competes with his. This situation can happen because the editor generally chooses the reviewer with a scientific profile close to the author. How can the author defend himself in such a situation?
Relevant answer
Answer
Editors should avoid selecting external peer reviewers with obvious potential conflicts of interest, for example, those who work in the same department or institution as any of the authors. Authors often provide editors with the names of persons they feel should not be asked to review a manuscript because of potential conflicts of interest, usually professional. Where possible, authors should be asked to explain or justify their concerns -  this information is important to editors in deciding whether to honor such requests.

Not sure this is what you're looking for, but I think the USFS has sometimes used a "scenic integrity" scale to capture something like naturalness (e.g. glossary of [1], p. 165; see also [2]). But maybe the US case is a bit unique given the recency of settlement/colonization, which can give a tempting reference point for thinking about naturalness, e.g. [3].

What is the future of scientific publishing in light of the trend of most journals to open access? And will this affect the quality of the scientific publication, as the view is still that the open-access is of lower quality and prestigious than the non-open one?
Relevant answer
Answer
Open access provides more chances for developing countries to access quality research. In addition, open access papers are more likely to be cited. Note that the quality of publications does not depend on being open access or not (but keep away from predatory journals). On the one side, many journals offer discounts and waive to developing countries and early-career scientists. On the other side, for senior scientists, by choosing open access you are showing that you can support your research with projects. So, if you can, yes, YOU SHOULD GO FOR OPEN ACCESS!

In some countries, rumors of cybercriminals with Ransomware are reportedly again being reported again. These viruses spread via e-mails, which automatically send themselves out from infected e-mail accounts and send out infected e-mails to all e-mail contacts of a virus mailbox infected with the virus. The virus is very dangerous because after opening a fake e-mail, the virus installs deeply into the computer and encrypts access to the disks by blocking access to the contents of the disks. I wrote scientific publications on this subject.
In view of the above, I am asking you the following question: Are cybercriminals now attacking personal and corporate computers using Ransomware viruses again?
Please reply. I invite you to the discussion
Relevant answer
Answer
Yes, in recent months there have been new, spectacular and effective cybercriminal attacks targeting selected large technology companies, companies from the energy sector, fuel sector, food production and other companies operating in strategic sectors of the economy as well as public institutions, including selected local government institutions and central public administration institutions countries. Cybercriminal attacks were carried out on the basis of cybercriminal techniques and solutions that have been known for years, i.e. through spamming containing malware, infecting computers with ransomware viruses encrypting access to disks containing important company data, through various variants of the cybercriminal technique known as phishing, by hijacking data to log in to specific accounts of various websites, to log in to e-mail, data downloaded from social networks and other places where Internet users enter personal and sensitive data and do not maintain high cybersecurity standards.

Scientific publications increasing require depositing raw data files that may be accumulated over years and must be matched to the published figures. Furthermore papers are requiring more data and more types of data so it is taking a long time between publications. Yet, all those years of experiments need to be organized, sortable, and linked to any final figures for anything to be published. So ideally each data type in a publication quality figure will be selectable so one is able to efficiently display and carefully check any and all associated raw data. Also when organizing final figures one needs to be able to then place all the associated raw data into a depository with minimal steps. Would greatly appreciate any and all advice on what systems are available and their strengths, ease of use, and weaknesses or problems.

Both are important. Scientific societies always appreciate the quality of research, and it could contribute on decision makings and have its impact on advancement of knowledge. In the other hand, reviewing at a glance, the number of research works will always be impressive.

As all of us are familiar with the different journal ranking systems and requirement conditions, in many cases we meet different kind of fees, charges for publishing our researches. Usually only the submitting and the previewing cost US$ 50-250, which is non-refundable and the paper may be rejected by the editors without being sent for review. Others introduce fees for the publishing US$ 500 -1000 (extra fees for colour graphs, maps etc. or for appeals against a Chief Editor's decision). For good English, they offer some links for the grammar review: US$ 100-200. Besides all of this, they employ embargo for 12-36 months, and ask US$ 600-2500 for open access.

Recently, I found an article that has been published in IEEE Access (DOI: 10.1109/ACCESS.2020.3045008), which is directly copied from a research article of ours (DOI: 10.1007/s00170-019-04213-z). A lot of figures and tables, and the text in body of the paper are same as our published paper. Moreover, most of the data are the same or have been only slightly changed and the text in the finding and discussion section is also mostly identical. We can see the same text with the same references (see the attached file).
Regarding this essential problem we sent an email to the editor handling of the paper. Then, the first author of the paper sent us an email, in which he tried to persuade us to forgive him. In fact, he confessed to committed plagiarism and asked us for mercy. Following reporting the problem to the EIC we received an email from IEEE Access as an investigation outcome as follow. "In the present case, we performed an investigation and discussed the case with the EIC, IEEE Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and myself. We believe that the article overlap is small enough that it does not warrant any further investigation."
We spent so much time on our paper, and they have just looked at our paper, modified it, and written another one. This is not fair at all. What can we do now? I would appreciate any kind of help.

I suggest you file a complaint with COPE -- the Committee on Publication Ethics.
In addition, IEEE has a Ethics and Member Conduct Committee, and you could file a complaint with them as well -- naming not only the author(s) but the editor and the members of the committee who attempted to bury your original complaint.
In short, take your complaint to every source you can find. The last thing IEEE wants is to be accused of running a "predatory journal," but that certainly seems to be what is happening your case.

Question

Nature Letters has historically been a "safety valve" for scientific publication in that it provided a way for a Nature Editor to allow the publication of short and possibly controversial pieces that might potentially be important, but that would find it difficult or impossible to pass normal peer-review.
In October 2019 Nature announced that the suspension of the Letters section was now a permanent feature of the journal's new redesign.
  • " ... From now on, all our research content will also be published in the 'Article' format; the shorter, 'Letter' format has been retired. "
This is, obviously, the end of an era. Was the format redundant? Did the science community not produce enough interesting but controversial material to keep it going? Are scientists today more conservative than they used to be and less willing to take risks with their reputations? Does this leave the scientific community without a respected "official" channel for communicating controversial ideas and results?
Relevant answer
Answer
The highest-profile "Nature Letter" I can think of (for the late Twentieth Century) is Stephen Hawking's "Black hole explosions?" letter, in 1974:
Hawking's letter outlined the concept of Hawking radiation, an idea that was unable to be published in mainstream journals as a paper, as it directly contradicted a key prediction of Einstein's general theory that was assumed to have been proved beyond reasonable doubt.
When Hawking gave a talk on the idea, the meeting was called to a premature halt by the organiser, John Taylor, who famously walked out declaring the idea to be rubbish. Taylor also supposedly advised Nature not to publish the letter ... but Nature's Editor decided to print it anyway, and the rest is history.
With Hawking's argument now published in a high-profile journal, a number of theorists then set to work identifying why the argument was wrong ... and found to their surprise that it wasn't.
How big a part did Nature Letters play in the uptake of Hawking's idea?
If Hawking hadn't been able to publish in a major journal, would the idea still have "broken through", or would it have risked disappearing without a trace?

Yes, in my country, the Scopus indexing base is considered one of the most important. The Scopus database is recognized as the main scientific database for the indexation of scientific publications characterized by high citation. However, on a global scale, the bases of indexing scientific publications recognized in various countries by various centers and scientific institutions are at least a dozen or so. However, these various indexing bases are not usually fully comparable, they are functionally differentiated and thanks to that they are only partially substitutable, but more often they are complementary. The question of complementarity should be developed. Then it will serve the development of scientific research and international cooperation of scientific communities.
In view of the above, I am asking you with the following question: Is the Scopus database recognized in your country as the main database for the indexation of scientific publications?
And if not the Scopus database, which other database of publications and scientific journals is considered the most important in your country?
Do you agree with me on the above matter?

Dear Dr. Dariusz Prokopowicz , I hold similar views - Dr. Avishag Gordon.
In India, the University (where I work) and many other Universities started seriously considering the Scopus index for Ph.D thesis submission ( 2 articles in scopus indexed journals), promotion (computing scores), and research grants (to assess quality of research undertaken so far) and Ph.D guideship (atleast 2 in scopus or SCI or SSCI)....
So, the point is Scopus is gaining acceptance/importance but there are other indexes too...considered equally important.

During recent decades, huge funds have been spent on research and scientific publication.

The real issue is our intent. When we conduct research because we are forced to do it then it stands no chance to come up with a solution to our real world problem.

Usually, the author of the review article is known in a certain area, with good publications history, in order to cover the topic. I think the review article should provide a new hypothesis or should concentrate and summarize a certain point that is needed to be reviewed. Thus, any one can write a review or should be invited by the editorial board.
Relevant answer
Answer
Journals (Ex: Progress in Materials Science) which solely publish review articles usually invite an expert in a field to write a review article. Some journals (Ex: International Materials Reviews) ask the authors to submit a proposal which is subjected to a evaluation by the editorial board to further proceed to invite or decline. Some journals (Ex: Reviews on Advanced Materials Science) accept review articles from any author who may be working in a different research topic also. Regular journals do invite expert authors occasionally or accept proposal for review papers. The general emphasize is that the author should have contributed significant literature in a particular field to qualify for writing review article. Presently, open access journals receive huge submissions of review articles. They are not bothered on the background of the authors. The quality is indeed degrading.

Top journals in our field scrapped methodologies based on ANN and design of experiments approach (Central Composite Design, Box Behnken Design, Orthogonal design, Taguchi method etc). It is very rare to find a paper using this methodology in reputed journals now a days. There are two primary reasons. They are mere tools that a researcher uses. It is not countable as original contribution to the research work. Secondly, all of these methodologies simply play around the inputted numbers. None of these tools can understand any manufacturing processes. They can not predict unexpected changes and rapid shifts in process outputs. Their prediction is limited to a narrow range of process parameters.
