International disparities in open access practices in the Earth Sciences

The rise in OA publishing has potential implications for researchers and tends to shift article-processing charges from organizations to individuals and until the earth sciences community decides to move away from journal-based criteria to evaluate researchers, it is likely that such high costs will continue to maintain financial inequities within this research community.

On the Potential of Preprints in Geochemistry: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

A range of discipline-specific or cross-domain platforms now exist, with exponential growth these last five years, and a strong community of early adopters is already beginning to experiment with such value-enhancing tools in many more disciplines than before.

Open Access publishing practice in Geochemistry: current state and look to the future

An overview of the trends in OA practice in the broad field of geochemistry is provided, showing geochemists could more widely choose legal self-archiving as an equitable and sustainable way to progress communication of their research.

An overview of Open Access publishing in palaeontology

Open Access (OA) describes the free, unrestricted access to and re-use of published research articles. Recently, the announcement of ‘Plan S’ has catalysed a new wave of interest, debate, and

The state of OA: a large-scale analysis of the prevalence and impact of Open Access articles

The citation impact of OA articles is examined, corroborating the so-called open-access citation advantage: accounting for age and discipline, OAarticles receive 18% more citations than average, an effect driven primarily by Green and Hybrid OA.

A series of suggestions, based on experience as teachers, researchers, reviewers, and editorial board members, to help authors to avoid pitfalls and establish a trend towards greater rigour in scientific writing are proposed.

The Oligopoly of Academic Publishers in the Digital Era

Analysis of 45 million documents indexed in the Web of Science over the period 1973-2013 shows that in both natural and medical sciences (NMS) and social sciences and humanities, Reed-Elsevier, Wiley-Blackwell, Springer, and Taylor & Francis increased their share of the published output, especially since the advent of the digital era (mid-1990s).

Moving Geochemical Transactions forward as an open access journal

Peer review and preprint policies are unclear at most major journals

Around 75% of journals have no clear policy on co-reviewing, citation of preprints, and publication of reviewer identities, and information regarding practices of Open Peer Review is even more scarce, with <20% of Journals providing clear information.
