An economics journal already runs a PubCred-type system Aug 4. 2010 | Comments (0)
Nothing new under the sun, apparently. I've just been informed by an economist colleague of a colleague that there is an economics journal which already operates on a version of the PubCred system. The main difference is that authors have the option of paying for submissions with real money instead of PubCreds (a hybrid which Dan Bolnick also suggested in the comments accompanying his petition signature).
Please do click through and read the journal's approach--it's very intriguing. I need to contact them to find out how well it works, how well the journal is doing, if they used to do things differently, etc.
