Something is going on in the process of scientific publication

Nearly 29000 researchers have threatened journals to make their content freely accessible online within 6 month after publication. More than half (40) of the editors have resigned from the renowned "Machine Learning" journal for similar reasons and founded an alternative online Journal of Machine Learning Research. There has been an intensive discussion about the reviewing process in general and reviewing time in particular in the connectionist mailing list.

Online Libraries

The Collection of Computer Science Bibliographies (BibTeX entries only, but well structured) The NECI Scientific Literature Digital Libary (CiteSeer) (Most papers online) Archives of Online Physics, Math and Computer Science Papers (First online archive with publication character incl. date, revision, id, ...) Networked Computer Science Technical Reference Library CogPrints: Cognitive Sciences Eprint Archive BioMed Central: Open Access, Rapid Publication, Full Peer Review


The Self-Archiving Initiative, Freeing the refereed research literature online (Stevan Harnard). The For Whom the Gate Tolls? How and Why to Free the Refereed Research Literature Online Through Author/Institution Self-Archiving, Now (Stevan Harnard).

Discussion Groups

Future e-access to the primary literature (ongoing discussion in Nature). Discussion of liberating the refereed literature (ongoing discussion in Science). Discussion of liberating the refereed literature (ongoing discussion in American Scientist). Discussion about the reviewing process in the connectionist mailing list.

Review & Publication Time of Computer Science Journals

The table below contains a list of average reviewing/revision/publication time of some computer science journals, based on personal and some colleagues' experience. The list may be useful for authors to look up how long they have to expect to wait until their submission gets published. If there are two journals of similar content this information may also guide them in selecting a journal. It may also be useful for journals to find themselves in the top or flop positions regarding reviewing time. Reviewing time is definitely not the only important measure. Other quantifiable information may be added in time.
