Title: How Publishing Peer Review Histories Alongside Articles Promotes Ethical Publishing Practices
Author(s): Corina Logan*
Companies: Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology
Keywords: exploitative vs ethical publishing practices; research rigor; open peer review

Researchers give papers for free (and often actually pay) to exploitative publishers who make millions off of our articles by locking them behind paywalls. This discriminates not only against the public (who are usually the ones that paid for the research in the first place), but also against the academics from institutions that cannot afford to pay for journal subscriptions and the 'scholarly poor'. I explain exploitative and ethical publishing practices and discuss how engaging in open research practices, such as publishing peer review histories, can improve research rigor, and prevent us from exploiting ourselves and discriminating against others.

Authors who are presenting talks have a * after their name.
