Workflow - Publishing Modification Comments

From Encyclopedia of Scientonomy
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Should the discussions concerning a suggested modification be published? If so, when and how should they be published?

In some academic workflows, discussions generated by publications are published as commentary articles, co authored by the participants. This can be done for a variety of reasons, such as incentivizing commenting, increasing communal participation and inclusivity, etc. In other workflows, ensuing discussions are left unpublished. It is important for the scientonomic workflow to clearly articulate how and when, if at all, the discussions on suggested modifications should be published.

In the scientonomic context, this question was first formulated by Hakob Barseghyan and Jamie Shaw in 2019. The question is currently accepted as a legitimate topic for discussion by Scientonomy community. At the moment, the question has no accepted answer in Scientonomy.
