I'm new, but would it be a good idea to categorize journals by type? For example, there is a (not yet started) Economics Journal. Should this be under a "Business Bookshelf", along with Management, Management Science, MIS, Marketing, etc.?

At present there isn't enough journals listed for me to be sure that categorization is necessary. If you'd like to add more examples for journals and then classify them, by all means go ahead. Although I'm not quite sure about your example categorization, as economics can be a bit broader than simply business (universities often prefer to classify it as a division of liberal arts or as social science).

Why no physics or chemistry journal?

Because no one has started one yet. If you or anyone else wanted to, that would be great. Sarge Baldy 02:15, 31 May 2006 (UTC)

What makes a Journal / peer review board? Edit

I am trying to get a hang of what's going on here. Are you saying that anybody can start up a Journal on this site,

Do they have to have any minimum qualifications, or as long as they say what they've got, they're in? Or do they even have to say what they've got?

Once you start up a Journal, how is it decided who is in the peer review board? Does the person who starts the Journal get to hand-pick the people who are on the peer review board for his/her particular journal?

Can you start your own Journal and publish within it? Of course that would be against the idea of being peer reviewed, but it would give people the opportunity to read something by the Journal founder before they submitted their own articles to be reviewed by that Journal.

I read somewhere on here that if you submit a bad enough article, you might be banned if two reviewers thought that it was that bad.

If you're blackballed from one journal, can you ask people from another journal, or are you banned from the entire site?
