Scholarly publishing a perspective from an early career academic

Slides from a 7-minute talk which I gave as part of a panel discussion on research evaluation at #COASP. If research is published in smaller units, it will be much easier to determine what early career researchers have precisely accomplished in their careers.

Scholarly publishing a perspective from an early career academic

  1. 1. Scholarly publishing: a perspective from an early career academic Derek Groen
  2. 2. Rethinking research evaluation in early careers Research evaluation is downright crucial in academic recruitment. However, many fresh PhDs have published only very few papers. It can be very difficult to determine the role of PhDs or early postdocs in each paper.
  3. 3. Data size problems A publication is an awkward unit of progress in early career research. Some PhD students work on a single paper during their whole PhD, others work on 5. Some papers are 3 pages with 20 authors, others are 60 pages with 2 authors.
  4. 4. Data size problems And reviewing is noisy. Publish Not publish
  5. 5. Data size problems Combined with having a small number of research products it tends to gravitate towards. PhD/job Failure
  6. 6. Solutions? Assign more reviewers… → costly. Promote a wider range of smaller research products: data sets software interpretations technical documents experience reports Also makes it easier to isolate small parts of obsoleted/disproven research.
  7. 7. One last thought: further annotated reference lists? [1] John Doe et al., 2015. [2] Jane Doe et al., 1998. [3] Jane Doe et al., 2015. [4] John D’oh et al., 2011. [5] Homer Simpson et al., 2008. Up-to-date paper. Paper has been superseded by a newer version from the authors. Paper has been amended after publication of this one. Results have been disproven by other authors. Paper has been withdrawn.
  8. 8. Thank you!
