New Research Resource: “Transpose, a Database of Journal Policies on Preprinting & Peer Review”
Today, we’re excited to announce the launch of Transpose (@TransposeSCI), a database of journal peer review, co-reviewing, and preprint policies relating to media coverage, licensing, versions, and citation.
These policies can often be difficult to find, unclear, or undefined. Our hope is to bring them to light so that authors, readers, reviewers, and other stakeholders can more easily find journals that align with their values. At the same time, editors can use this resource to draw inspiration from changing practices at other journals. (Read more user stories here.)
In addition to searching for individual journals, users can select up to three journals to compare side-by-side.
Currently, the database contains approximately 2,900 records, hundreds of which have been verified by representatives of journals or publishers.
