1/ Joining some wonderful people from what I am seeing as a diverse group of researchers at the #EditorialBoard of @PLOSGPH; journal has given itself the tall order of “addresses inequities in public health and makes impactful research accessible to all… (1/n) #Threads
2/ In words of @paimadhu "the journal will amplify the voices of underrepresented and historically excluded communities and prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levels"; I am highly skeptical of this,
3/ yet I am thrilled that a #PublicHealth journal would give itself such a vision; #Knowledge #Science #Evidence all reproduce the same kind of social hierarchies that drive unfair accumulation of resources in our society

¿Que dice la evidencia sobre Ivermectina en #COVID19?🧵

✅Meta-análisis de 10 ECCAs, n=1173

🚫Ivermectina NO redujo

✅Mortalidad

Es gibt aber noch jede Menge anderer Gelegenheiten, Gutachten zu verfassen, z.B. für zur Veröffentlichung vorgesehene Publikationen. Das können ganze Bücher sein - in den Genuss kommt man als Reihenherausgeber*in (ich bin in drei Editorial Boards), Beiträge in Sammelbänden oder
Artikel für Zeitschriften. Begutachtet wird #doubleblind (Gutachter*in und Autor*innen werden nicht benannt), #singleblind (Gutachter*in weiß, wer der*die Verfasser*innen sind - so ist das übrigens auch bei Drittmittelanträgen) und #open #PeerReview (beide Seiten wissen
voneinander). Weil @ferdinandsnotes, @mdanganh und ich nicht nur unsere Leidenschaft für #Medienlinguistik teilen, sondern auch unsere Faible für Transparenz, haben wir vor drei Jahren das @jfml_journal gegründet. Das Bild zeigt das Logo der...

Wieso ist #PeerReview eigentlich so verlernt worden??
#PLURV //Thread 🧵//
Herr @ChanasitJonas bezieht sich auf die Stellungnahme der #DGPI& #DGKH,die schon bzgl. des angeblichen Österreichischen Erfolgs so danebengelegen haben.
dgpi.de/stellungnahme-…
Schauen wir Details an:
2/
1. DGPI beziehen sich auf die _Gesamtheit_ der "Kinder und Jugendlichen", nicht auf die Infizierten. Und dazu _schätzen_ sie deren Zahl aber nur.

Click zum @destatis unterbleibt genauso, wie Hinweis, dass diese aber eben noch nicht infiziert waren.
destatis.de/DE/Themen/Gese…
2. Da sich deren hauseigene Survey auf "Kinder & Jugendliche 0-19 Jahre" bezieht, sollte man auch deren Zahl korrekt angeben:
15,3 Mio sind es sogar (link oben).
9% Unterschied - guter Start.

#GeoffreyMiller is at it again. Making wild and entirely wrong pronouncements about diversity practices in current academic work, well-directed to his easily outraged anti-academic and/or reactionary audience.
Let's fact-checked (or: #peerreview) his tweet.

1. Yes, many job applications are now required to include a diversity statement.

2. No, they don't have to say *anything* about critical race theory.

3. Neither do they ask to "pledge their support" to any other tenet or theory.
4. Holy hell, no, a diversity statement is NOT compelled speech.

5. Being required to submit application documents for a university job violates the First Amendment? Ha ha ha ha ha. What a hilariously absurd claim.

Diversity and fairness in peer review require non academic peer reviewers. @CSRpeerreview
Women, esp. minority women, report a higher threshold for establishing credibility amongst their peers per Dr. Byrnes. Dr. Byrnes commented that this is sad, and I totally agree.

Die Stellungnahme erscheint am 14.3. - verwendet aber Daten der österreichischen Tests, die schon drei Wochen alt sind.
Es werden weder die aktuellen Inzidenzen von Kindern und Jugendlichen in Österreich verwendet, noch irgendwie darauf hingewiesen, dass es sich um die erste➡️ Image

Die Teststrategie wird zwar erwähnt (immer am ersten Tag), aber nicht in Zusammenhang gebracht.
Das einzige, was die Ergebnisse zeigen, ist:

It’s never easy to have a paper rejected after going through #PeerReview. In this thread we offer some advice to help you move on and move up. 👆😀

#AcademicChatter #AcademicTwitter #ecrchat #phdlife Image
Your paper was rejected? Sorry to hear that! It’s certainly not the outcome you expected after putting in so much time and energy. It’s common and totally normal to feel a range of negative emotions.

😢☹️😡😲🤯😭🤨
It’s important to deal with these emotions first. Step away from the paper for a little while. Work on a different project. Vent to a trusted colleague. Do something that makes you happy - go for a swim, watch BBC comedies, eat ice cream (at least that’s what I do).

Really looking forward to this #USASP2020 session! Toward a Consensus on Guiding Principles for Anti-Racist Pain Research. Speakers Dr. Lisa Campbell @DrCaliaMorai Dr. Anna Hood & Dr. @JanelleLetzen
Racism is a health determinant, yet is seldom named as such. We talked about this in the Systemic Racism networking session yesterday: when we talk about #SDOH we speak about 'race' as a risk factor, yet rarely talk about racism as the true risk #USASP2020 #antiracistpainresearch
This is such a great talk from Dr. Hood! 'Instead of asking how race or ethnicity influence health outcomes, anti-research research asks how racism influences health outcomes.' #USASP2020 #antiracistpainresearch #antiracism

Hey tweeps, if you could reinvent the way we publish in science, what would you keep/change from the current model?

i promised in this thread i'd offer an idea of an alternative #academic #publishing model, so here it is. be prepared, changing to this would require some seriously radical change... 1/17

#AcademicChatter #academicpublishing #academicjournals #peerreview #ecrchat #openaccess
i outlined in the thread linked above MANY flaws with academic publishing, so let's completely get rid of the current system.

in its place we have one global central database, funded by governments/unis collectively 2/17
everything gets uploaded to this database. this is our new single journal.

articles can be rolling, so they can be registered reports, the final piece, or you can add new data if you analyse more stuff. its flexible. 3/17

Thread. @nature encourages authors to recommend and exclude reviewers. My personal views on the strategies that are likely to increase/decrease the chances of your recommendations being taken up ... #peerreview #scicomm #climatetwitter
What to do …
Recommend scientists with minimal connections to the author group. One could argue that your previous co-authors, advisors, etc. will be familiar with your work and are therefore well placed to comment. But I will worry about a personal COI.

so now ive published my paper on a #preprint (osf.io/preprints/nutr…), its worth comparing my experience with typical #peerreview publishing, mainly to highlight how much time & energy we waste with a system that offers very little added value
1/9
#openscience #AcademicTwitter
il do this comparison with the last paper i got formally accepted to a journal as these 2 co-occured so there's no "time effect" or anything as a confounder. (JP = journal publishing; PP = preprint publishing) 2/9
JP: rejected 6 times (i think); 3 were editorial rejections *explicitly* mentioning the null findings as a reason for rejection
PP: paper is out there open for anyone to openly critique and i welcome this 3/9

why i am no longer publishing (my own) #research in #academic journals - a (long) thread 1/38

#AcademicTwitter #AcademicChatter #academicpublishing #academicjournals #peerreview #ecrchat #OpenScience #publicationbias

(some references at the end of the thread)
(i still have a few collaborative papers to write and these will be published properly for the benefit of my co-authors)

i will soon publish a paper on a pre-print server, with no intention of submitting to an academic journal. my reasons for this are manifold 2/38
1. #academia is inherently corrupt & the publication model facilitates this:
- unpaid labour (editors, peer-reviewers,& authors [ok, they do get paid by the uni which oft = public funds yet journals privately profit & we see none of this unlike other forms of publishing]) 3/38

Peer review is an imperfect tool, and should not be treated as a Swiss army knife (always applicable). It has its uses where it works and adds value, but there are other uses that are simply not helpful. Primarily, #peerreview can be used to assess empirical studies by finding
potential problems with the data and statistical analysis. Here more perspective can uncover non-obvious errors or limitations that the authors have failed to identify or, also not common, chosen not to present. The questions peer review can ask here are whether the analysis was
done properly, if the results may be reliable, and what they add to our cumulative knowledge. The review focuses on whether the authors have done their due diligence and have done enough to exclude errors in the design and check for errors in carrying out the study. But there are

I am so proud of my first paper as corresponding author! And on a topic I am SURE I'll work on for the rest of my life: the need to #SciComm in languages other than English! It was so fun working with @mcmsharksxx on this! 👇 #ComunicaCiencia 1/n

Before I start on this thread, I want to thank the team @FrontiersIn, our editor @mufferaw, and our reviewers @sabahzero and Rakeb Tesfaye for helping us turn an honestly mediocre manuscript into a much more thoughtful opinion. I love it when #PeerReview works! #SciComm 2/n
The #COVID19 pandemic has highlighted many inequities including the lack of #SciComm in languages other than English. We wrote this before the pandemic hit and it's been sad to see much of what we speak of in this paper reflected in real time. 3/n
