I am sometimes thinking about journals where I could publish my results. Out of curiosity, because I once again got a predatory journal's email, I googled and I found "Beall's List" (of potentially predatory journals), which has been discontinued but has some successors.
I just received the most useless #review for a #paper I've ever seen (I'm the editor). It only says "English could be improved" and "More information on the subject could be found in my book." with a link to the reviewer's book.
The reviewer took only 9! minutes to read and review the paper.
The top reasons graduate students are leaving academia 🏃♂️
1. The funding climate is discouraging
2. Too competitive/lack of jobs
3. Lack of work-life balance
"Less than half (48%) of respondents say that they would prefer, ultimately, to work in academia. That’s down from 56% in 2019"
"I don’t want this kind of life"

Review She Wrote
After four rounds of peer review, #Reviewer3 is found dead at his keyboard. The Editor is missing. The suspects are the article authors, but the journal’s system won’t reveal the their names without the editor’s login.
Can Emeritus Professor JG Fletcher use #Clues in the manuscript to figure out who is responsible before they come after her?
Question for experienced reviewers
Currently working on my first manuscript review report for an academic press. The manuscript is quite good and I don't see any glaring problems or need for major revisions. Given this, I'm not sure how much feedback is necessary or appropriate. For those who have done this before, any common dos and donts I should be aware of? @politicalscience @academicchatter
