It’s a brave editor who takes a decision to change accepted practice for submissions and peer review, particularly when he knows that his reasoning is controversial, that there are strong opposing views, and that the reaction from the scholarly community is likely to be highly polarized – and very vocal. But that didn’t stop Dr. David Trafimow, editor of Basic and Applied Social Psychology, from announcing in an editorial in the first issue of 2015 that the journal will cease accepting papers that relied on certain statistical methods – especially the null hypothesis significance testing procedure – with immediate effect. Because of the huge amount of attention the editorial has received, we’ve invited Dr. Trafimow and respected colleagues to reflect on the reaction to his editorial and what the ban may mean for future scholarly research.

Metrics, media, marketing and the changing world of journals
In this changing world of journal publishing, issues of discoverability, accessibility, and effective impact are becoming more important to both editors and authors. We recently held two Editor Workshops in Oxford and York chaired by Dr David Green, Global Publishing Director of Taylor & Francis Group, to explore the topics of metrics, media, and marketing directly with Taylor & Francis editors.
