Preprints, Peer Review, and Plagiarism—Scientific Publishing in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

Tuesday 20 August, 15:30

A Panel Discussion with Editors of catalysis journals moderated by Peter Gölitz, Editor Emeritus of Angewandte Chemie

Will preprints affect intellectual property?

Will preprints make journals obsolete?

How many versions of an article should be published?

Will referees be selected by computers?

Will manuscript be written and reviewed by computers?

Do we have more retractions today than decades ago?

Is plagiarism the only/most important defect in the system?

Will Impact Factors disappear?

Will other metrics be helpful?

These and other questions—also from the floor-will be discussed with

Christophe Copéret, Helvetica Chimica Acta
Johannes Lercher, Journal of Catalysis
Yongdan Li, Catalysis Today
Michael Rowan, ChemCatChem
Anna Simpson, Catalysis Science & Technology
