London, June 23, 2022-HindaWilimited announced the launch of a new journal report, which provides unprecedented details on the basic service of Hindawi journal.

The Hindawi journal report shows the extensive publishing standards from submission to peer review and discovery, providing unprecedented deep insights for their performance and composition.

Please see the example here:

The first stage of the new journal report provides more in -depth views on acceptance rates and decision -making time, including the median time of peer review and the number of reviews of each article. In addition to the traditional standards such as quoting and articles, these reports also provide the geographical distribution of authors, editors, and reviewers. The last part includes the standards for the openness of metadata (such as abstracts and references that are publicly provided to Crossref), machine readability of content, and the use of continuous recognition features (such as orcid).

By sharing this information, Hindawi's goal is to help researchers make more wise decisions when choosing a journal for publishing articles, rather than relying on limited and often problematic indicators.

"Hindawi is committed to publishing the evidence -based method. By starting to unbind and share our different service data, we aim to unveil the" black box "of the publishing industry and let it undergo an independent review. Take our work flow more more. The method of transparent and collaboration will also help promote publication innovation, and further support researchers, funds providers and institutions committed to open science. "

Hindawi chief journal development officer Mathiasastell added:

"These reports marked an important step in increasing the performance of journals and constituting transparency, helping researchers, institutions, fund providers and publishing partners to understand the value provided by the journal. It began to help subvert the historical geographical prejudice in the publishing industry. We also believe that public sharing the standard of impact on the author's experience is very important to get rid of traditional evaluation journals. In the secondary iteration, we plan to further improve transparency and openness through the future stage. "

DataSalon Executive Director Nickandrews commented:
