Arab authors’ perceptions about the scholarly publishing and refereeing system
What is it about?
The paper investigates the quality of the scholarly publishing and refereeing system used in Emerald’s LIS journals from the perspectives of Arab authors who are publishing in this wide-ranging database. Such topic, to date, has limited previous research, as well as the limited size of the representation of the Arab authors in Emerald’s LIS journals in the past five years, which is due logically to the lack of their research and scientific contributions in this database during this period. Future research could focus on varied contexts or samples, such as other different disciplines and nationalities.
Why is it important?
The importance of this study stems from the importance of its subject: “The importance for academics to publish in academic journals is widely acknowledged” (Kapp and Albertyn, 2008, p. 271). According to the British Ecological Society (2013), the scholarly publishing system is important to give confidence that the article has been checked for its scientific validity.
