Editorial ruminations: publishing Kyklos


Frey, Bruno S; Eichenberger, Reiner; Frey, René L (2009). Editorial ruminations: publishing Kyklos. Kyklos, 62(2):151-160.

Abstract

Scholars today are under increasing pressure to publish in A journals, the main role of which consists in certifying that a paper meets traditional academic standards. Consequences of this pressure are multiple authorship, the slicing of ideas, and incentives to deviate from the truth. The overburdened reviewers' evaluations are characterized by selfish efforts to protect their intel-lectual capital and to avoid risk. The behaviour of editors depends much on whether there are a large or small number of editors. The editors of Kyklos respond to these developments by welcoming innovative papers that go beyond standardized orthodoxy.
