What 2021 has brought for AKJournals

The approaching end of the calendar year offers a good occasion to look back and summarise our achievements. Although the passing year, still dominated by COVID-19, was not easy for anyone, we are proud to report about a few affirming successes.

New journals

closed great volumes with at least too issues and impressive articles.

New services

In addition to plagiarism screening of submissions in English via iThenticate, we started to apply Turnitin for articles in other languages to also detect dishonest translations.

Thematic COVID-19 Collection

In the first 18 months of the COVID-19 pandemic, Akadémiai Kiadó published nearly 180, closely or loosely related articles. Naturally, most of them belong to Medical and Health Sciences or Biology and Life Sciences. Moreover, there are dozens of articles in Social Sciences and Law, Behavioral Sciences or Business and Economics. The topic appears even in apparently more distant areas of research, such as Materials and Applied Sciences, Chemistry and Chemical Engineering and Arts and Humanities. We grouped together all these papers into a thematic collection on our AKJournals website.

Peer Review Week 2021: Identity in Peer Review

Peer Review Week 2021In 2021, September 20-24 was chosen to celebrate a most essential ingredient of academic publishing: Peer Review.

The idea of pre-publication screening of scientific papers is pretty old. Historians report about the first peer review process in 1665 at Philosophical Transactions of London Royal Society; and about the first fully refereed academic journal Media Essays and Observations in 1731 by the Royal Society in Edinburgh. Still, it has not become widely accepted until after WWII. In 1936 Albert Einstein was deeply offended, and in fact withdrew his submission from Physical Reviews, because it had been sent to a referee. Refereeing, as a routine, was introduced at The Lancet in 1976. The word ‘referee’ was first used in scientific publication in 1817 and the term `peer review’ is only ca. 50 years old.
