    115: A modest proposal

    115: A modest proposal

    We discuss James' recent proposal that scientists should be paid for performing peer review for journals published by for-profit companies—$450, to be precise. Dan also puts forward three meta-science projects that he thinks are worth funding.


    More details



    James' tweet proposing peer review should be compensated
    Since recording this episode, James has set up the @450Movement twitter account
    Also see James' blog post
    The Collabra Psychology journal
    Did the folks that co-authored the "redefine statistical sigificance" paper actually go on to follow their own recommendations?
    Would high financial compensation of people on job search panels lead to better quality hires?
    A tool that would automatically scrape the email addresses the of authors of papers you cite would make life easier for asking for feedback and providing review recommendations.
    I'm curious as to whether people are reading the show notes. If you are reading this and want a Hertz mug, the first person to send @hertzpodcast a tweet saying they read the show notes will get a free mug

Unprofessional and uninformed

So unprofessional, so uninformed. So ... five stars.

Great

James voices every opinion I have regarding academia in a hilariously direct approach that frequently leaves me laughing out loud! And Dan does a great job of keeping him in check! Great podcast!
