What open source webpublishing software has the scientific community for e-journals?

Nowadays a scientific community can use different electronic publishing systems for the e-journals (journal management systems). Open-source ones were developed solely for e-publications' management and now, in 2007, we can say three of them are of general use for e-journals: Digital Publishing System (DPubs), ePublishing toolkit (ePubTk), Open Journal System (OJS). There exists also different content management systems (CMS), yet those were not primarily built for e-journals and are usable only with a special publication module. Finally, the third option is to pay for a service of different publishers and providers with their own publication systems. This paper deals with comparison of the first two options: specialised systems for e-journals on one side and general CMS on the other side.

Promoting Integrity in Scientific Journal Publications

This white paper examines the various models of authorship and contributorship and analyses how editors can ensure that they have a workable conflict of interest policy. While the first half of the paper covers the roles and responsibilities of all parties involved in publishing, the second half covers research misconduct - its definition and identification as well as international models to tackle it. The paper also examines the difference between a retraction and a published expression of concern, and addresses the question of how best to correct the literature.
