Abstract

For most of the more than 350 years from the founding of Philosophical Transactions by the Royal Society in 1665, reader payment and institutional subscription have been the basic business models of academic journal publishing. Entering the new century, the open access movement has quietly emerged and developed rapidly. Twenty years later, it has been in full swing. The open access business model, typified by the author paying the article processing charge (APC), is steadily replacing the traditional subscription model. At the same time, transparent and open review methods and tools are introduced into the review process of submissions, and the core functions of academic journals to advance trusted research and maintain scientific research integrity continue to be played. The disadvantages of using impact factors only to evaluate journal publishing performance and judging articles (research results) by journals’ achievements have been recognized by more and more people, and the emerging evaluation indexes have attracted more and more attention.

从1665年皇家学会创办《哲学汇刊》到现在350多年的绝大部分时间里,读者付费、机构订阅一直是学术期刊出版的基本商业模式。进入新世纪,开放获取运动悄然兴起、迅速发展,20年过去已成燎原之势。以收取作者论文处理费(article processing charge)为典型代表的开放获取商业模式正逐步取代传统订阅模式。与此同时,透明、开放的评审方式、工具被引入对投稿论文的评审流程,学术期刊促进可信的研究、维护科研诚信的核心功能继续得以发挥;以期刊影响因子论英雄、以刊评文(研究成果)的弊端被越来越多的人认识,新兴的指标体系日益受到瞩目。
