The latest issue of our journal, European Science Editing, is now online. The full issue is available to EASE members, the Editorial and Original articles are freely available to all readers.
We hand over to our Editor in Chief, Ksenija Baždarić, for her introduction to the issue:
In October, EASE will host a double event in collaboration with the European Council combining our member-only AGM with an open participation discussion forum: GDPR and privacy in journal publishing: good practice for submission and peer review processes.
EASE has signed the Leiden declaration on more transparent editorial journal policies; we invite you to sign it as well.
We thank our colleague John Hilton for his invaluable work as the News Notes editor for so long. We wish him success in his many endeavours and at the same time we welcome Yateendra Joshi as the first ESE copy editor.
This issue opens with the editorial by our Council member Rachael Lammey from CrossRef, “Data sharing and data citation: join the movement!”, in which she brings news about data sharing. In the original article, Juan Jose Prieto analyzes documents about ResearchGate indexed in Google Scholar between 2008 and 2017. The essay section has two interesting articles. The first offers guidance about how to detect misconduct in biomedical images by Ye and Lin. The second, by Kozak and Hartley, comments on the inconsiderate nature of many science articles.
In the meeting reports section, Olga Kirillova reports from the 8th International Scientific and Practical Conference “World-Class Scientific Publication – 2019: Strategy and Tactics of Management and Development” in Moscow, Russia and Fiona Murphy’s Researcher to Reader Conference that takes place in London every February. This issue’s forum digest summarizes a vivid discussion about reviewing and confidentiality (a must-read) and in This Site I Like you can read about the cOAlition S alliance and its plan to accelerate the transition to a full open access model for scholary publication.
