Lifelines and Funeral Rites in the Publishing World

(scholarlykitchen.sspnet.org): The publishing world is going through life and death experiences (with plenty of deaths recorded with grim glee at the Magazine Death Pool). It's certainly not because there isn't a lot to learn about publishing. It's probably due to a few changes that mirror shifts in the publishing landscape.

Combined, the journals produced fewer than 10 original research articles annually over a seven-year period. Calls for rigorous psychoanalytic research studies have become more common in the past decade, as an increasing number of analysts have committed to demonstrating the validity and efficacy of what they do. But the debate also goes to the heart of the discipline itself.
