Please note this journal is temporarily closed for submissions while we recruit a new editorial team.
The Journal of Open Psychology Data (JOPD) features peer reviewed data papers describing psychology datasets with high reuse potential. Data papers may describe data from unpublished work, including replication research, or from papers published previously in a traditional journal. We are working with a number of specialist and institutional data repositories to ensure that the associated data are professionally archived, preserved, and openly available. Equally importantly, the data and the papers are citable, and reuse is tracked.
The Journal of Open Psychology Data (JOPD) is seeking candidates for a new editorial team. JOPD is an international, peer reviewed, open access data journal. JOPD publishes data papers, which do not contain research results but rather a concise description of a dataset, and where to find it. A data paper is a publication that is designed to make other researchers aware of data that is of potential use to them for scientific and educational purposes. JOPD has been published since 2013.
An Editorial role is a gratifying and furthering experience. It allows one to build on their networks, to contribute in disseminating data and research on topics one cares about and gain wider recognition in the field. The role is voluntary. No monetary compensation is included.
We hope to appoint at least two Editors-in-Chief (EiCs), who will jointly hold ultimate responsibility for the journal practices and publications, including peer review, final decisions and working constructively with Ubiquity Press for the journal’s development. We are also open to candidates interested in other roles or who would like to join the Editorial Board. The journal is looking to improve the structure of its editorial team, so all suggestions are welcome.
Desired skills are:
• To be very active in the field (e.g. attend conferences, publish, be a member of associations and committees)
• To hold knowledge of editorial processes and apply them to a high standard
• To interact with confidence with the Editorial Board, authors and reviewers, and the other Editors-in-Chief (if applicable)
• To possess high organizational skills in order to process editorial work in a timely manner
• To maintain positive collaborations with all parties involved in the journal’s work
Ubiquity Press is an open access publisher of peer-reviewed academic journals, books and data. We operate a highly cost-efficient model that makes quality open access publishing affordable for everyone. Ubiquity Press is committed to open data. Our data journals provide a fully open access way to discover research resources that are spread across multiple locations and usually hard to find. Our meta papers reward authors for openly archiving their research datasets, software, bioresources and reports, through citation and impact tracking. By doing so they also enable new and more efficient research, new collaborations, and use by the public (e.g. for teaching and journalism).
