What do you think about the research publication process? Editage Insights releases a thought-provoking survey for authors

(December 13, 2016; Mumbai, India) - On December 7, 2016, Editage Insights, the educational resource portal for academic authors and journals, launched a comprehensive survey for researchers worldwide. Through this survey, Editage Insights invites researchers around the world to think about what matters to them in the academic publishing process and what they think is broken and needs to change. To encourage honest participation, Editage Insights assures participants that any identifying information will be treated as confidential.

“In 2014, we published a survey of East Asian authors and international journal editors that opened our eyes to gaps that exist between both perspectives. Our interactions with authors have made it clear that authors have many pain points in the publishing process,” explained Clarinda Cerejo, Editor-in-Chief, Editage Insights. She continued, “Authors are at the heart of the publishing system as both producers and consumers of published research. If we can capture the collective voice of authors, we can shape critical changes to make the publishing system more author-friendly. I urge researchers from all corners of the globe to participate in this survey. Your honest responses will really help make a difference.”

Experts believe that the scholarly publications industry needs to evolve based on the changing needs of researchers. Sharing authors’ opinions and expectations with journal editors and global industry influencers in a structured manner can lay the foundation for change in the future. Through this survey, Editage Insights attempts to make the voice of authors heard and further bridge the gap between authors and publishers.
