  • Project mention: Request for Feedback: An open-source, open-access, community governed academic publishing platform that crowdsources review using reputation | /r/AskAcademia | 2023-06-28

    Hey everyone, I'm an experienced software engineer from an academic family. I've been aware of the problems in academic publishing for most of my life, and for the last several years I've been running headlong into the paywalls as I work on municipal policy advocacy. I've been pondering software solutions to this problem for a long time. This is exactly the sort of problem internet based software is, in theory, best suited to solving: sharing and discussing information. It should be possible to build a web platform that allows academia to share work, collect feedback, organize review that maintains quality, and find relevant papers with out relying on private, for-profit journal publishers. It should be possible to build and run a web platform that handles all of academic publishing for 1% of the current cost of for-profit publishing or less - which would (in theory) allow the universities to keep it funded while allowing it to be free to publish and free to access. Hell, it could probably be run lean enough that individual academics could fund it through small dollar donations. There's really no good reason to allow the private publishers to charge academia $11 billion a year while keeping 80% of the work locked behind paywalls. I've had several ideas for how to approach the problem, and I spent the last year building out a beta of one of them as a side project. Software development is experimental and iterative. It only works when the developers are able to get active feedback from the people most effected by the problems they are trying to solve. So I'm reaching out for feedback on the beta, and on possible paths forward. The web platform that I've built enables crowdsourced peer review of academic papers. It uses a reputation system (similar to StackExchange) and ties reputation to a field/concept tagging system. Submitted papers must be tagged with 1 - n fields, and only peers who have passed a reputation threshold in one of the tagged fields may offer review. Review is also split into two phases: pre-publish and post-publish. Pre-publish review is author driven. It's focused on collaborative, constructive feedback and uses an interface heavily inspired by both Github Pull Requests and Google Docs. Post-publish review is much closer to traditional review, and is focused on maintaining the integrity of the literature by filtering out spam, misinformation, fraud, and poorly done work. Reputation is mostly gained and lost through voting that happens during post-publish review. Reputation can also be gained by offering particularly constructive pre-publish reviews. All reviews are open and published alongside the papers. Post-publish review is on-going. That's iteration one. As much as I believe review could be crowdsourced, it seems pretty clear that going straight from what we have to this platform would be a huge leap. So I have ideas for how to build a journal overlay on top of the crowdsourced review system that would allow editors to manage teams of reviewers and run their journals through the platform. This would allow them to take advantage of the review interface, and would still give authors the benefit of being able to have a conversation with their reviewers. Authors would then be able to choose to submit their papers to one or more journals, crowdsourced review, or both. Building that out is the next project. Right now I'm working on this as a side project and an experiment -- could a web platform like this work? Would people even use it? If the answer turns out be yes, I'd love for it to become a non-profit, multi-stakeholder cooperative. Essentially independent public infrastructure similar to Wikipedia, only more transparent and more clearly democratically governed. I would love feedback on all aspects of this project - both the current crowdsourcing iteration and the thought to build a generic, open platform for diamond open access journals to run their operations through. Could you ever see yourself using something like this to publish? What about to collect pre-print review? Could you see yourself reviewing through it? What about submitting to journals through it? Are there other approaches to building a web platform that might work better? Am I barking up the wrong tree? Should I press forward, abandon, or is there a better tree?
