Publons: The Future of Academic Research

peter.suber's bookmarks 2012-12-31

Summary:

Abstract:  The manner in which academic research is published has remained remarkably static relative to the upheaval currently underway in most other publishing industries. In this paper we examine the incentive structure that caused this outcome, outline a strategic approach to creating a system that encourages collaboration and faster scientific development, and introduce publons.com, our implementation of these ideas.
