Despite cosmetic changes, scientific journals haven't changed that much over the past few decades. So what if we were to completely rethink how a scientific journal should operate in today's environment?
Dan and James are joined by Rickard Carlsson (Linnaeus University, Sweden), who is the Co-Editor of the new "Meta-Psychology" journal.
Here's what they cover:
- Why start a new psychology journal?
- What’s new about this journal?
- How does the journal have no subscription fees and no article processing fees?
- How does a new journal increase its profile?
- The difficulties in publishing negative results
- The limits of study pre-registration
- Are data archiving requirements unrealistic?
- Open polices and the Swedish constitution
- How can we make data anonymous?
- What’s the hardest thing about starting a journal?
- What would success look like for this new journal?
- What has Rickard changed his mind about recently?
- What’s one book or paper that Rickard thinks everyone should read
