Title: Psychology Publishing in Portugal: Hardships and Disappointment follows Expectations
Authors: Parada, Filomena
Issue Date: 24-Jun-2009
Publisher: ZPID (Leibniz Institute for Psychology Information)
Abstract: Recently, to publish or to perish has become a motto governing most of researchers work. In Portugal, what makes the whole process so prone to hardships and disappointments is the lack of resources, mainly financial. At least, that’s what most of the interviewees – researchers working mostly at some of the major Portuguese public universities – mentioned. Such a lack of resources is crosssectional to all aspects under analysis: accessibility, costs, reviewing, time delay, language, impact and reputation. However, some additional specificities must be pointed out, namely those deriving from a lack of organization (e.g., absence of national databases) or from the need to, most of the time, publishing a non-native language due to impact and reputation issues, with all the reviewing and time delay questions specifically deriving from it. Finally, participants’ expectation and/or suggestions concerning an Open Access European Psychology Publication Platform will be outlined. Key words: psychology; scientific communication; open access; funding; language; time delay;reputation; databases; Portugal
