[Update: the new version has now been released: see The STM Report]

I’m about to start an update/revision of the “Scientific Publishing in Transition” paper I wrote for ALPSP/STM in 2006, which attempted to provide an overview of journals publishing issues with data taken from published papers and reports etc.

Obviously there’s been a lot of developments in the last three years. If anyone would like to suggest topics and/or published papers, reports etc. that should be covered in the new edition I’d be very grateful for the suggestions. Similarly, any suggested corrections or amendments to the existing text would be welcome.

In the interests of open discussion I’m suggesting responses could be posted as comments to this blog entry, thus collecting them together in one place. But straight responses to the list or private emails to me are equally welcome!
