To claim credit for a discovery, we publish it in a peer-reviewed journal; to get a job in academia or money to run a lab, we present piles of these published papers to universities and funding agencies. Publishing is so embedded in the practice of science that whoever controls the journals controls access to the entire profession. It is, therefore, worth examining to whom we have entrusted the keys to the kingdom of science.
DORA is calling for the scientific community to contribute fresh JIF-less examples to the new DORA web page. Some procedures collected to date will affect scientists applying for positions at Europe's leading EMBO in Germany, at the NSF and at the NIH.
