- PostAssessing the Efficacy and Fairness of Traditional and Open Peer Review in Academic Publishing(2024) Samoaa, Peter; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Chalmers University of Technolog; John, Jobin; John, JobinThis report investigates the prevailing attitudes toward traditional and open peer review systems among researchers in computer science. Through an analytical survey conducted with a diverse group of participants, including faculty members and students with varying publication records, we explore the perceived efficacy, fairness, and quality of both review processes. Particular attention is given to the consistency of respondents' answers, examining the correlation between their general opinions on peer review and their specific experiences with comment quality. The study aims to assess whether open peer review can address the shortcomings of the traditional system, taking into account the role of respondent and their experience in research.
- PostWhat can I do? Academics perceptions on issues concerning licences(2024) Michael Ayas, Hamdy; Erlenhov, Linda; Thörn, Hannes; Chalmers tekniska högskola; Chalmers University of Technolog; John, Jobin; John, JobinIn this study we aim to understand what people in academia (academics, researchers and students) find challenging regarding the topic of licences. Specifically, we collect discussions from Q&A fora and manually analyse them to unravel what our stakeholders feel compelled to ask about and discuss online. We collect 407 questions and after filtering we analyze 212 of them using thematic analysis techniques. We identify 8 clusters of challenges, that we further determine based on 6 types of questions they can be concerned with (i.e., What, How, Why, Should, Can, and Is there questions). We find that most questions ask what license to pick for different scenarios and the tools available to help with this selection do not take in to consideration that there might already be licensed material in use. Our findings can be used as input to educational material regarding licences or future ”licence helper tools” development, in order to cover what people in academia typically find challenging and ask about in expert Q&A fora.
