FAQ (for authors & evaluators)

We want to get authors, research groups, reviewers, and institutions involved, and to support this. They may have doubts, which we try to anticipate and answer throughout this section of the book.

General FAQs

What is the Unjournal? (see here)

We will organize and fund public journal-independent feedback, rating, and evaluation of hosted papers and dynamically-presented research projects. We will focus on work that is highly relevant to global priorities (especially in economics, social science, and impact evaluation). We will encourage better research by making it easier for researchers to get feedback and credible ratings on their work.

Is the Unjournal a journal?

No, we will not ‘publish’ any research; we will just commission public evaluation and rating of relevant research. Having your work evaluated in the Unjournal should not limit you from submitting it to any publication.

Public-facing FAQ (also embedded below)
