SAGE Ocean - enabling social scientists to work with big data & technology
Many journals are facing a chronic shortage of experts willing to review submissions, and early-career researchers are often seen as an easy solution to this problem. But for researchers at the start of their careers, it can be difficult to know what journals expect from a reviewer.
Code has become an integral part of the scientific publishing process, but what happens to it once an article is published? The answer is often “not much.” This is a problem for reproducibility: it can be impossible to replicate a study if you can’t run it in the same way as the original.
Securing a good quality review is now a huge challenge for Editors. With the rise in manuscript submissions, academics are receiving more invitations to review than ever before. As such, it can sometimes take 10 or more invites to even secure one quality review for a manuscript. It can begin to feel like a never-ending cycle of rejection.
