Interdisciplines

Despite the fact that no single definition exists for similarity, in the scope of this work, we consider two types of relationships to define similarity: citation and co-authorship. Using these relationships, we can measure similarity to be inversely proportional to the distance that separates researchers in the co-authorship network and papers in the citation network [3].

Following this basic intuition, the rationale behind our homophily-weighted metrics consists on using the distance on these graphs to weight traditional metrics, which in this particular paper is applied to citation count.

More specifically, we report on the development, definition and rationale of a theoretical model for peer review processes to support the identification of appropriate metrics to assess the processes main properties. We then apply the proposed model and analysis framework to data sets from conference evaluation processes and we discuss the results implications and their eventual use toward improving the analyzed peer review processes.

Liquid Publications: Scientific Publications meet the Web — LiquidPub Project. Is liquid publication and peer review the wave of the future in science? As a professor and researcher, one of my most time-consuming tasks is performing peer review.

Is liquid publication and peer review the wave of the future in science?

That is, reading and commenting on articles submitted to conferences and journals, proposals submitted to granting agencies, theses submitted for degrees, and promotion dossiers (which themselves require reading several papers). In this post I will point out the strengths and weaknesses of the current peer review systems, as I see them, and make some suggestions for change. The suggestions include adopting what is called liquid publication in parallel with the classic gate-keeping style of peer review. Liquid publication focuses on post-publication review and citation; blogs are one form of this. Peer review is essential to science, it serves several purposes including: Forcing researchers to adhere to standards of good research, since they don't want to be embarrassed by being caught making mistakes.Slowing down the publication process sufficiently to allow for 'sober second thought'.

Liquid Publications. A possible alternative to Peer Review and the ‘publish or perish’ logic of academic publishing URL = “In a nutshell, the approach proposes the following ideas and contributions: 1.

Liquid Publications

It introduces the notion of Liquid Publications (and, analogously, Liquid Textbooks) as evolutionary, collaborative, multi-faceted knowledge objects that can be composed and consumed at different levels of detail. 2. 3. Although the change advocated here is dramatic, the transition is not.
