As far as I know, this is a candidate for Education, Media, Business, and even Journalism.

And perhaps this isn't "developed"? --Larry Sanger 15:46, 9 March 2007 (CST) Well, I rewrote most of it about 6 months ago at WP from a fairly good earlier start I found there--and there have been some good subsequent improvements in WP worth putting in and I will do so in the next week. I've always thought of articles like this as an overlap with media and journalism. I tend not to think about business more than I can help, but it wouldn't be irrelevant, unless it ends up trying to serve too broad a constituency. The main thing it needs before being submitted for approval is references. It was essentially written out of personal knowledge by all of the people who worked on it. It may take till the end of February until I can get to it. And then i think I'd submit it for approval, to one of the other library science editors. I will ask on the list there.& mention it on the other forums for comments.

I ask the others--this refers to a slightly more specific article on scientific journal, also rewritten at about the same time. On WP people were using academic/scientific interchangeably. I am not sure that the articles shouldn't be merged into a single longer article , with sections for humanities also, as there is a great deal of overlap. Opinions welcome.

External links

I do not think it practical to use the external links to be a place to list the links to potentially every scholarly journal. Should probably be limited to a comprehensive site (if there is one). Ok to delete these links to specific journal(s)? - Robert Badgett 11:54, 8 April 2008 (CDT)

They should be deleted. We have already had this discussion over earlier articles on disciplinary academic journals, and there was agreement that it is ridiculous to try to list all in a discipline and unreasonable and unnecessarily elitist to list only a few.

"publish" or perish

The word "publish" or "publication" is used three times in a 5-word stretch in the first sentence. This must surely be in record for any kind of publication.... Hayford Peirce 12:50, 23 July 2008 (CDT)

Move to Scholarly journal?

This would be a better fit, in my opinion, and include scientific research made outside academia. --Daniel Mietchen 23:25, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Yep, and in the humanities there are journals which are contributed to by a mixture of schoalrs in and out of the academy. Seems a reasonable move. –Tom Morris 00:08, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
