Hello There, Guest!  

Journal issues, number, editions etc.

Meng Hu has asked me:

Quote:P.S. concerning the journal, in some others, you can have things like this :

Multivariate Behavioral Research, 35 (1), 21-50.

When you try google scholar,

Kirkegaard, E. O., & Fuerst, J. Educational attainment, income, use of social benefits, crime rate and the general socioeconomic factor among 71 immigrant groups in Denmark.

There are no numbers, page numbering, etc. Do you want to add those (e.g., numbers corresponding to months, and the number in parentheses, for the first, second, third paper published in this month - just some ideas), or do you think it's ok ?

When I set up the journal I wanted to make it modern and take advantage of modern technologies, like... discussion forums that have been along for >20 years but still not used by other journals (strange?).

There was also the question of whether to have issues, numbers, editions and what not. It seems not to serve any purpose anymore. Recall that the reason these numbers are there is that they literally printed issues of the journals. For any modern journal, this idea doesn't make sense, so I didn't make any issues or anything. I included the year, just for ease of referencing e.g. Hu, M. (2014). Open Differential Psychology.
Instead, normal publications in Intelligence looks like this:

Jensen, A. R., & Weng, L. J. (1994). What is a good g?. Intelligence, 18(3), 231-258.

They have issue (18), number (3), pages (231-258).

In general, having to add these would increase the work burden for the editors.

I prefer to keep it this way, but perhaps I am in the minority among the review team. Thoughts?
