How should authors manage publication uncertainty? Accdon publishes a white paper addressing issues of paper mills, mass retractions, and journal delistings


September 2023 | BOSTON:

The academic publishing industry has experienced several upheavals in the past year, including Clarivate journal delistings, updated journal ‘blacklists’, and an overhaul of the journal impact factor (JIF). All of these changes undoubtedly cause some uncertainty in authors, as it is they who will ultimately pay the price if a journal in which they publish is later stripped of its JIF or, even worse, closed down.
Accdon White Paper Introduction

To provide more clarity to authors and guide them in making publication decisions, Accdon has published a white paper: Hesitant to Publish: Growing Academic Misconduct in Scholarly Publishing Drives Author Uncertainty. With more choices than ever, authors already struggled to find the perfect fit for their manuscript without having to worry about the potential of academic misconduct.
