An article in Times Higher Education reports that the editorial board of the journal of Prometheus: Critical Studies in Innovation, has threatened to resign. Why? The journal’s publisher, Taylor & Francis, delayed the publication of a special issue of Prometheus on the topic of academic publishing and profits and made changes to the issue’s articles, including removing the names of academic publishers. The publisher also inserted a disclaimer alongside the main article, saying that “the accuracy of the content should not be relied upon”. (via Sam Liao)
Taylor & Francis publish many philosophy journals. Any editors care to weigh in on this?
