Publishing Technologies for Journals
New Book Published by Kowsar, Authors: SM Miri, SM Alavian

Introduction of this book:

Due to an average half-life of each article, which is about six months, an enthusiastic editor-in-chief must spread every new articles' main message within the first hours of publishing. It means that editors should already be well-trained in the field of journalism and updated about all new technologies in publishing.

The main reason for publishing so many low-quality journals is not the authors and their low-quality articles. It is directly related to those editors who performed their editorial job because of official compulsion from the journal owners or without interest. We have so many editors who are involved in the editorial job as their third or fourth job. Editorial assignments must be the first and only job of every editor in chief.

We aimed to introduce some of the new technologies and tools to improve editorial works. These tools help editors to promote their articles and distribute them to more readers. The ultimate goal of publishing every journal is reading by more readers and solving more obstacles. Reading this book is highly recommended to all editors and executive managers of the journals.

In this book, we reviewed some major new useful technologies required for the enhancement of published articles including:

  1. Plagiarism and iThenticate
  2. DOI
  3. Crossref
  4. ORCID
  5. Validate References
  6. Publons
  7. Altmetrics
