A friend of mine from when I was teaching ft at the SLAC is now a PhD and teaching Hebrew. He talks in a recent post about the need for peer review for online journals.
In short, the distinction between print and digital media matters far, far less than the path to publication, for most forms of research. Only if that path goes through an academic editor’s hands, and more desirably through several peer reviewers’ hands as well, will tenure and promotion committees consider the work to be “scholarship.”
This is an important aspect of credibility for journals in general and particularly touches on my thoughts as we reconsider the course for Central Thoughts.
