In Episode 21, Kyle and Jon discuss research publishing and software standards for research publishing. The discussion then meanders into open source publishing versus e-print publishing and presubmissions for peer review. Jon and Kyle then banter about adding editorial oversight to so-called “Xiv” publishing sites. Some of the sites we discuss are the engrXiv, the Journal of Open Engineering (TJOE), and the Journal of Open Source Software (JOSS).
