115: A modest proposal

Episode 115 · September 7th, 2020 · 1 hr 6 secs

About this Episode

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
