Academic Publishing Wiki

Hello, Owen. I want to draw your attention to some past discussions of wiki publishing. --JWSchmidt 16:47, 1 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Journal article naming?[]

Hey, I've read all the guides for starting a journal etc. but what do you actually name the "issues"? For example say I started the "Journal of Chocolate". Would an issue of that be linked as "Journal of Chocolate:Health Issues in the Factory: The Antipersonal Production and Verification of Vitametavegamin Ingredients", or would it need "Vol. 1" or something in the page title to show what order they were published in? Or, alternately, do I do it like Flexibility in wiki publishing: author desires, peer review and citation and not have a namespace identifier at all?

Also do I use Title Case For The Name or do I only Capitalise the first letter and then continue without caps?

Anyway, hope I hear back from you soon, I've got some wikifying to do! :) Garrett 00:27, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Oh and do you think curly apostrophies (’) are acceptable? The document I'm wikifying has them, but I can take them out if you think it's better. Garrett 00:35, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Thanks! I've started Journal of History and Classics and The struggle for Greece: Marathon and Artemision. I hope I did everything correctly... :( Garrett

...It makes sense to me to just keep everything together (i.e., use, as you say, "Journal of Chocolate:Health Issues in the Factory: The Antipersonal Production and Verification of Vitametavegamin Ingredients"). Sarge Baldy 11:02, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)
Oh! So should I move what I started to be a child of the namespace then (i.e., at Journal of History and Classics:The struggle for Greece: Marathon and Artemision) or what? Garrett 11:05, 13 Jul 2005 (UTC)


I was so frustrated when the rules on WikiBooks said that one couldn't publish original research. What better place to talk about ones research than a Wiki? Thanx for making this one available. --Rck 04:19, 16 Jul 2005 (UTC)

re: Sysop[]

Hello Garrett, just letting you know I've promoted you to a sysop. Sarge Baldy 02:04, 21 Jul 2005 (UTC)

LOL! I did just notice all them extra tab thingies...! Thank you, I'm sure it'll be very useful... :) Garrett 10:39, 21 Jul 2005 (UTC)

Information Management[]

For the Journal of South Asian Health, I would like to do a couple of things:

1. Create a resource list. A better wording would be "tabulate" or be able to "categorize."

For example, my interests are: "Oncology" "epidemiology" etc. So, someone may be able to look up "oncology" or "epidemiology" and my name should populate as someone with interest.

Though there are only 5-6 collaborators currently, i am hoping (praying? :-))that there will be more, working on more projects, and I would like to be prepared to streamline the process of finding collaborators. What do you think?

2. I also want to create a template for each disease, so when someone starts a topic, a template would populate. For example, this page

I think I got the disease template part. (sorry,, I don't know how to send you a message back on your talk page from mine.

Although, I do want to learn how to make a template let's call it {{SAHRI:Header}} - which will provide a link to the top of the journal [[SAHRI:Back to Journal of South Asian Health]]. I tried creating {{SAHRI:SAHRI TOP BAR}} without success. - Biren

Peer review[]

I was wondering after having created a couple of articles with plans to create more just what the process is for obtaining peer reviews? Do I start submitting links and asking for reviews or what? imho 00:24, 17 July 2006 (UTC)

Many Questions[]

I have posted several questions about Journals and Peer Review Boards under "List of Journals"

I'm kind of unclear on what the intent of the whole site is. Are you planning to leave the Journal Makers alone to establish whatever style and level of professionalism of their journals they desire, (Hopefully the cream rises to the top)? Is the Journal Creation process limited to those with PhDs or are high school students with strong interest in subjects encouraged?

Of course few people are going to seek the peer review of high school students, but I don't see rules to prevent them from starting a journal on which they have no real interest or expertise.

I guess I'm just missing an overall description of the site.

Biology journal startup[]

I am hoping to get some initial pages saved today for the Biology Journal. It looks lonely. JCGonzales 15:31, 23 May 2007 (UTC)

This appears to be ready for inspection: Biology Journal category tree
Creating a journal is an educational experience in itself! It seems appropriate to start an article that reviews some of the literature in the field of biology, or that examines some of the major topics within the subject. I am making no first author claims on the startup work already completed, so that someone with reasonable credentials in the subject may act as our Biology Journal editor.

Computer journal startup pages...[]

...and I think I'm getting the hang of connecting categories to improve Academia organization (I used to be a librarian's aide in a public law library here in San Diego... I can't help it!) JCGonzales 00:19, 24 May 2007 (UTC)
