Academic Journal Publishing Reform
Keywords: Academic Journal
AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic global crisis has hastened transformations in all spheres of our lives and activities. The digital transformations that were taking place at snails’ pace suddenly gained pace at lightning speed due to the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Academic publishing, a subfield of publishing which distributes academic research and scholarly works, has equally experienced renewed focus on Academic journal publishing reform. Open publication models have proved invaluable in fast and wide distribution of academic research and scholarly works during the COVID-19 pandemic disruptions. Consequently, traditional journal space is quickly giving way to online journal space.
Submission of a manuscript implies: that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis); that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere; that if and when the manuscript is accepted for publication, the authors agree to automatic transfer of the copyright to the publisher in this case to UNZA-JONAS.
