Model performance (AUC), logistic threshold and top four most important variables for each crop are shown in S6 Table. Frontiers’ manuscript displays the EiC’s name. On the eve of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, PLOS ONE is calling for submissions for a new Collection on Rewilding and Restoration. We estimated that about 0.2% of existing crop area will become unsuitable for all modelled crops without irrigation or other intensive inputs for RCP 8.5 2060–2080 scenario. In contrast, there will be a small loss of existing crop area. A manuscript can also be rejected before it is even sent out for review, if the associate editor deems it basically unsound. We like science to be out in the open, and publication of peer-reviewed research to take place without undue delays, so that others can use and build upon the findings. This paper has three specific implications as well as raising some broader scale issues that need to be reflected on. Standing aside from these ecological issues, these results also have implications for society and mean that this analysis makes a contribution to the broad area of sustainability science and the emerging literature on planetary boundaries and planetary health [62–63]. Frontiers Field Chief Editor (EiC) contract contains stipulations such as: “The Field Chief Editor is appointed for a one year term, […] subject to termination by either party for any reason upon a minimum of thirty (30) days’ notice”, “The Field Chief Editor is ultimately responsible for […] driving the journal to publish at least 1200 high-quality articles per year across the entire field”, “Frontiers offers an honorarium for Field Chief Editors of EUR 15,000/year for every full year covered as Field Chief Editor, provided […] the journal publishes a minimum of 500 articles per year by the second year”. An exact match for GCM, scenario and time step was not available, but shows general spatial congruence of the modeling methods for late-century, high emissions scenarios. Sound planning and management of climate-driven agricultural frontiers can therefore help reduce globally significant impacts on people, ecosystems and the climate system. Yet according to the publisher, they actually did not have to be. The very issue is, that while at Hindawi, PLOS or elsewhere it is rather straightforward for a dutiful editor to reject a poor quality manuscript, they seem to be hindered to do so with Frontiers. With that said, it is important to recognize that food insecurity in remote communities is rarely a function of food production alone and is more often associated with a complex legacy of colonialism, education, and socio-cultural disconnects. Change ), You are commenting using your Google account. I would agree with Sten in that I can’t see a ‘smoking gun’ in the Frontiers editors documents. PLOS is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) corporation, #C2354500, based in San Francisco, California, US Save this journal alert Log in to create a weekly email alert for: All Subject Areas The Chief Editor reviews whether the paper was handled in a fair and unbiased manner and takes the final decision whether or not to reject the paper”. As aside, Janecka apparently soon self-plagiarised his Frontiers work in a follow-up paper elsewhere. To account for differential emissions assumptions by land class, the areas in agricultural frontiers were categorized according to existing land cover in the global land cover facility (GLCF) dataset [40–41]. The list of crops is listed in Table 1 and parameters used is depicted in S3 Table. (2020) Writing – review & editing, Affiliation A former chief editor of Frontiers medical journal complained to the publisher that some of editors and reviewers assigned to clinical papers not only did not have the right medical qualifications to handle those, but that some of them were not even medical doctors. We calculate the Agricultural Water Quality (AWQ) index as the land area affected by hydrological footprint >0% and >50% as proxies for all contamination and for significant contamination respectively. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.g001. The development of any agricultural “frontier” would, therefore, need to be done fully cognizant of the fact that Indigenous Communities must be at the forefront of any development plans and must be the primary beneficiaries. New genetically modified crops, including quick maturing soybeans, and new management practices, such as precision agriculture, are giving farmers the ability to plant in environments that once would have been considered extreme. Critical temperature values were obtained from references [76–90]. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.g002. The list is very helpful and well compiled”. Existing agricultural land cover >10% of each pixel is represented in light brown. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.t004. The contract repeatedly makes clear to the handling editors: “You may not, however, reject a paper on your own. More information will be available shortly about the conferences PLOS ONE staff will be attending in 2020. Frontiers are defined as areas that transition from zero crops suitable in current climate to one or more crops suitable in the future climate scenario. Dice-Sorenson measures the spatial overlap with the formula 2a/2a+b+c where a = cells in common and b + c = cells in disagreement. Why pick on Frontiers? At PLOS ONE we like to speed up the publication process wherever we can. Click through the PLOS taxonomy to find articles in your field. Different brain responses to one’s own action sounds in hurdling vs. tap dancing. Department of Geography, Environment and Geomatics, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada, Roles Given that some of this new farmland (in drylands) will not generate significant runoff, under RCP 8.5 the land area with AWQ varies from a maximum additional 7–12% (median 9%) with the maximum additional global population affected varying from 9–10% (median 9%). PLOS ONE welcomes original research submissions from the natural sciences, medical research, engineering, as well as the related social sciences and humanities, including: -Primary research that contributes to the base of scientific knowledge, including interdisciplinary, replication studies, and negative or null results. Policy change could drastically increase land requirements for biofuel production, as it has done in Brazil. Hindawi publishes the acceptance rates alongside every journal, which even can be low as one-quarter. In this study, we use simple but high-resolution crop suitability models to document possible water, carbon and biodiversity impacts associated with the potential cultivation of areas becoming suitable for agriculture for the first time. I have had the final decision. Guidelines for Authors and Press Officers PLOS (Public Library of Science) is a nonprofit Open Access publisher, empowering researchers to accelerate progress in science and medicine by leading a transformation in research communication. Loop is the open research network that increases the discoverability and impact of researchers and their work. PLOS ONE ensures the highest standards of quality and openness for the content it publishes and boosts speed to publication by eliminating subjective assessments of significance or scope to focus on technical, ethical and scientific rigor. Unlike Hindawi, Frontiers successfully negotiated publishing agreements with Western (predominantly European) research institutions, such as the German Max-Planck-Society, and a number of research centres and universities, which ensure that Frontiers authors will get their article-processing charges shouldered by their institutional libraries. 6.4–8% (median 7.3%, RCP8.5) or 5.5–6.9% (median 6.3% RCP4.5) of global reservoirs would experience increased AWQ impacts as a result of agricultural frontiers and 2.0–3.8% (median 2.9%, RCP 8.5) or 1.7–3.1% (median 2.4% RCP4.5) of reservoirs would be exposed to elevated impacts (AWQ >50%). The inappropriate handling editor was eventually revoked and the manuscript reassigned, but the complaining Frontiers editor was soon afterwards sacked, together with 30 other colleagues, after they issued a Manifesto demanding editorial independence. These frontiers cover an area equivalent to over 30% of the current agricultural land on the planet and have major potential impacts on biodiversity in tropical mountains, on water resources downstream and on carbon storage in high latitude lands. So, attacking Frontiers is very unfair. Supervision, Conceptualization, One thousand points were generated for each crop, with a greater percentage of the distribution given where there is greater agreement among the four databases. This is equivalent to 47–116% of all carbon currently in the Earth’s atmosphere (Fig 2). PLoS ONE 15(2): Variables were standardized then partitioned into clusters using hclust() base R function. PLOS ONE ensures the highest standards of quality and openness for the content it publishes and boosts speed to publication by eliminating subjective assessments of significance or scope to focus on technical, ethical and scientific rigor. This is a nice feature as it gives the authors a chance to correct possible misunderstandings on the part of the reviewers. View In the Gray Box 1 above, record the journal you searched and the keywords you used (e.g., Journal of Neuroscience: Parkinson’s substantia nigra; Frontiers in Neuroscience: animal model of autism).Create The handling editor then invites reviewers (otherwise Frontiers invites them automatically using a computer algorithm) and manages their communications with authors. After all, PLOS ONE is a comprehensive journal. As a former Frontiers reviewer Guillaume Rousselet mentioned, this can easily go into fifth and even eighth round of revision. The two publishers are regularly criticised for their excessive email advertising, occasionally compared to “spamming”. Pingback: Conspiracy Theory: Is NPG being assimilated by Frontiers??? Registered Report Protocol $1,300 USD Registered Report Article $750 USD* All other articles $1,695 USD PLOS Biology. The upper-range population endpoints, while less likely, would result in very different demand drivers for new agricultural production in our end-century scenarios. Frontiers in Neuroscience – Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience, 14, 483. doi: 10.3389/fnins.2020.00483. EcoCrop is a generalized physiological model of crop suitability based on known ranges of optimal temperature and precipitation as well as climatic limits where production of that crop would be impossible [22, 23]. Associate editors are repeatedly reminded that. Water quality changes in these downstream areas from fertilizer and biocide runoff may affect human health, ecosystem health, production of fisheries and the cost of water treatment. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.s008. Species’ ranges may move in response to climate change, causing changes in patterns of biodiversity, at the same time as frontiers are opening. “Editors are free to either select reviewers from our suggested list, or to use any other qualified reviewers, who are then checked by our staff to ensure that they are of sufficient seniority and they have no conflict of interest with the manuscript’s authors”. We have witnessed its rise, now prepare for its fall. Adding environmental policies within such programs could help reduce the impacts associated with frontier development, for instance by promoting non-agricultural industries and supporting low carbon forms of land use. Just in the same year 2007, the OA publisher Frontiers was founded by the neuroscientist couple Henry and Kamila Markram at the elite university EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland. 2020 Mar 23;15(3):e0230417. Polito V, Stevenson RJ (2019) A systematic study of microdosing psychedelics. Yes Current climate represents the mean monthly climate over the period 1950–2000 whereas future climate projections cover 20-year averages over the periods 2040–2060 and 2060–2080. Further, we calculate the population affected by this hydrological footprint as the sum of Landscan 2011 [30] people in pixels with a hydrological footprint of the new agricultural areas >0% and >50%. Here we assess the extent to which climate change may create new opportunities to cultivate land in regions not currently cultivated as well as assessing the environmental implications of developing these so-called “agricultural frontiers.” In particular, climate change may stimulate large-scale geographic shifts in lands suitable for agricultural production, including the expansion of cultivation at the thermal and precipitation limits of crop tolerance [5–10]. In this case, we send the paper to the same Editor who had previously rejected it to make sure that the paper is sufficiently updated to go through the peer review process again”. Yes If you have the ability, you can submit in a professional journal. Current and future monthly climate grids were obtained from WorldClim Global Climate Data (www.worldclim.org). Writing – review & editing, Roles Given the now 5 retractions by the Talukdar pair, 4 of them from Hindawi journals [1], I have asked Frontiers to kindly explain [2] how this pair of plant scientists could have been included as Guest Associate Editors [3]. Quantification of frontiers and their potential impacts presented here are therefore conservative. PLOS ONE promises fair, rigorous peer review, The fall of PLOS ONE‘s JIF is to be expected if you look at how the Journal Impact Factor is calculated and the structure and editorial policy of the journal. Writing – review & editing, Affiliation First, humanity has a history of cultivating land that was once deemed unlikely to ever justify cultivation–and this has created massive sustainability problems. The APA Style Blog provides some guidance and examples:. Total tonnage of soil carbon was then summed for each resulting grid. PLoS ONE 14(5): e0217148. Change ). To calculate the population within the new agricultural areas, who may experience water quality declines, we sum the Landscan global population dataset 2011 [30] over the area of new agriculture. Discover a faster, simpler path to publishing in a high-quality journal. Blue color ramp shows transition from zero currently suitable commodity crops to one or more suitable commodities. These days, Google’s H-index data was released, and plos one’s influence ranked 23rd or more, even surpassing the super-premium journal Nature Chemistry, which is more than the sci impact factor indicator.Shocked...The large amount of documents can also affect Google's new generation of index system? Background: Gut microbial diversity and composition play important roles in health. KTmp = Killing Temperature (°C); Tn = Absolute Minimum Temp (°C); TnOp = Minimum Optimal Temp (°C); Tx = Absolute Maximum Temp (°C); TxOp = Maximum Optimal Temp (°C); Pn = Absolute Minimum Precip (mm); PnOp = Minimum Optimal Precip (mm); Px = Absolute Maximum Precip (mm); PxOp = Maximum Optimal Precip (mm); Gseas = Growing Season Duration (days). Last year brought the most precipitous drop yet. The release of carbon following tilling from previously untilled soils is believed to occur rapidly and estimates suggest that 25–40% of total soil carbon is released within five years of plowing [54]. Funding: The authors would like to thank the Betty and Gordon Moore Center for Science at Conservation International for supporting portions of the research. As shown in the results section of this paper, if agriculture is allowed to extend into all of the frontiers identified here, then there would be little chance of reaching the Paris climate accord’s goals of keeping climate change to within 1.5°C above preindustrial levels [60]. ( Log Out /  Footprints are calculated for the current distribution of cropland fractional cover [34], the current distribution of land suitable for cropland and each ensemble member of the frontiers. Conceptualization, Leonid Schneider is creating Independent Science Journalism. In particular, changing crop suitability in the frontiers is likely to be a gradual, but sustained, source of new greenhouse gas emissions that may make it difficult for some countries to make progressive reductions toward Paris Agreement targets. https://pubpeer.com/publications/007641D073828558563CD9418157AB – For Better Science, Self-Plagiarism: helps careers, hurts noone? Writing – review & editing, Roles These results show that the number of restricted range birds impacted by frontiers increases in the future from 409 species to 491 species under RCP8.5 representing 20% of the 2,451 global restricted range bird species and 409 to 362 under RCP4.5 (Table 3). Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience Frontiers Research Foundation 4.171 PLoS One Public Library of Science (PLoS) 4.092 Bmc Genomics BioMed Central 4.073 Veterinary Research BioMed Central 4.06 Biology Direct BioMed Central 4.017 Journal of Statistical Software … PLOS One (stylized PLOS ONE, and formerly PLoS ONE) is a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published by the Public Library of Science (PLOS) since 2006. Hindawi editorial manager Michael Fayez explained the company’s principles in his email to me: “The responsibility of managing the peer-review process is shared equally among the members of the Editorial Board. Existing agriculture is represented in grey for both panels. Open-access publisher of peer-reviewed scientific articles across the entire spectrum of academia. The total area of frontiers is largely insensitive to adjustments to the choice of threshold across all methods used, because under a more permissive threshold the currently suitable area will expand, but there will be an accompanying expansion of frontiers poleward—and vice versa for a less permissive threshold. Similarly, Russia has policies promoting homesteading in Siberia that will attract more settlers as warming continues, while China and Korea have both leased land in Siberia for agriculture even under current climatic limitations [67–68]. Once the review reports have been received, the Editor will decide whether to accept or reject the manuscript based on the review reports. Frontiers in Neuroscience: c. PLOS ONE: 2. PLOS ONEeditors evaluate research on the basis of scientific validity, rigorous methodology, and high ethical standards, with the aim of making all well-conducted research freely available. Here we model for the first time multiple major global commodity crop suitability changes due to climate change, to estimate the impacts of new crop suitability on water, biodiversity and carbon storage. By not excluding papers on the basis of subject area, PLoS ONE facilitates the discovery of the connections between papers whether within or between disciplines. That means that researchers are reading and citing articles published in the journal. 1 to 2; 2006 to 2007 This is a dedicated space for PLOS ONE Editors where you can interact with PLOS ONE staff, network with other Editorial Board Members, and discover new resources from PLOS The following year, PLOS ONE received its second JIF (4.411). PLOS employs several business models to support equitable Open Access. Journal Impact. A useless one-page opinion that has, IMHO, more flaws than text: ADVANCING OPEN SCIENCE. As a Hindawi editor told me, independently seconded by another one: “Editorial board members regardless of journal do not have contracts, this is a free obligation without ties”. Table 4 shows that agricultural frontiers increase the amount of land potentially affected by changes in AWQ 9% to 16% (median 12%) compared to current impact (RCP 8.5, ensemble minimum and maximum). Hotspots, EBA and KBA polygons were converted to raster. In particular, it is argued that the world needs to produce 70% more food by 2050 and if we fail to achieve this then there will be major social and economic impacts [2–4]. Correction: The environmental consequences of climate-driven agricultural frontiers. ISSN: 1662-5102. Seems like the major difference between Frontiers and Hindawi/PLOS ONE/BMC etc. This suggests opportunities for economic development that, if done properly, may reduce poverty and food insecurity in some economically marginal parts of the world, such as northern Canada, where a lack of economic opportunities has created epidemic levels of food insecurity. The expansion of agriculture into newly suitable regions may lead to environmental impacts not experienced under previous land uses, including impacts on biodiversity, water services and carbon storage [18]. Hindawi editors seem to operate outside of the publisher’s tutelage. Frontiers in Cellular Neuroscience Impact Factor, IF, number of article, detailed information and journal factor. I do not consider it a credible journal because a careful/critical reading of any of its papers will reveal an assortment of methodological errors, power issues, or simply bad grammatical errors. [2] http://journal.frontiersin.org/article/10.3389/fpls.2015.01220/full The weary reviewers will either eventually consent to accept your paper, or withdraw from peer review. The problem here is similar as with F1000: http://www.lifescience.net/news/306/challenges-of-open-post-publication-review/. PLoS ONE 14(5): e0216241. is that the former is the only one where editors are judged by how many manuscripts they accept. In particular, there are serious social issues that would need to be considered that fall outside of the scope of this paper. PeerJ offers everything PLOS ONE does at a fraction of the cost, and further includes a preprint service and open peer-review. There are serious negative environmental impacts associated with the unfettered development of climate-driven agricultural frontiers. Neither Hindawi nor Frontiers make their peer review reports public, but Frontiers names the reviewers, who are usually members of the specially recruited “Review Editors” list. Namely, it must be noted that two countries–Canada and Russia–contain 56% of the global frontier area. Writing – original draft, Climate-driven agricultural frontiers as defined here cover between 10.3–24.1 million km2 of the planet’s surface, with an ensemble median value of 15.1 million km2 under RCP 8.5 by 2060–2080 (Fig 1, S2 Fig). Yes Variables available for download at this resolution and used in the simulations reported here were mean daily maximum temperature of each month (Tmax), mean daily minimum temperature of each month (Tmin), mean total precipitation of each month (Precip) and a suite of 19 bioclimatic variables [S2 Table]. While the number of scientists has been growing exponentially over the last decades, the number of journals with a large audience has not kept up, neither has the number of articles published per journal. A second implication relates to biodiversity. Loop enables you to stay up-to-date with the latest discoveries and news, connect with researchers and form new collaborations. Balancing cropland expansion, to feed the world’s growing population, with the protection of land to conserve biodiversity and ecosystem services is a major global challenge [2]. Yet, Scientific Reports has a much higher Impact Factor (5.228 vs. 3.057), shorter publication delay, and more lenient data availability policies — characteristics that may be drawing potential authors from PLOS ONE. Canada (4.2 million km2) and Russia (4.3 million km2) harbor the greatest area of agricultural frontier (RCP 8.5, ensemble median). Species potentially impacted by frontiers are most numerous in Central America and the Northern Andes, with secondary concentrations in the Himalayas and highlands of New Guinea. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.s010, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.s011. Release of carbon from high latitude soils due to warming is already of major concern but may be small relative to the amounts of carbon that might be released if these areas come under cultivation [53]. In any case, the practice of inviting field outsiders as editors and peer reviewers is still tolerated at Frontiers, as the case of Janecka paper recently demonstrated. Ditto for F1000 Research, which in addition offers unlimited revisions (a topic close to my heart ;). Therefore, scientists submit their best work to the journals with the largest audience. Environmental impacts from climate-related agricultural land use change include impacts on climate services (e.g., reduction in carbon storage), the effects of agricultural pollution on downstream areas, and degradation of natural habitats with attendant loss of biodiversity [47–52]. Attach Files. Yes Investigation, With the latter I mean cases like the guidelines for mouse mutant studies that we adopted when I was EIC of Genes, Brain and Behavior (DOI: 10.1111/j.1601-183X.2008.00438.x). Hi Sten, once a manuscript entered peer review it can only be rejected when ALL reviewers recommend rejection. Eine wesentliche Besonderheit ist, dass die Zeitschrift alle Wissenschaftsbereiche abdecken möchte. watersheds, species ranges). So of course it’s peer-reviewed as the least common denominator and starting point. As long as they get their $1495 they’re happy. However, this effect depends on species’ ability to occupy newly suitable areas. There is a fundamental problem with the so-called “gold” model of open access, where the author pays up-front. Formal analysis, The Betty and Gordon Moore Center for Science, Conservation International, Arlington, Virginia, United States of America, Roles Frontier cultivation may have significant economic, food security and trade benefits for these countries, providing significant incentives favoring development. By not excluding papers on the basis of subject area, PLOS ONE facilitates the discovery of the connections between papers whether within or between disciplines. S1 Fig presents a flowchart showing the details of GCMs and other data used and their analysis. Areas of visible purple are where the universal agreement among three models indicates that it is currently suitable for at least one modeled commodity crop but is not currently cultivated. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.s001, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0228305.s002.

Show Review in Original Language PLOS gives you more control over how and when your work becomes available. This is also what is generally understood under editorial independence. Sten and Paul, thanks for your criticisms. This is documented in the contracts, together with the expectation from chief editors to deliver a certain number of accepted papers. Occurrence data and range maps for global restricted range bird species were obtained from Birdlife International [46]. is that the former is the only one where editors are judged by how many manuscripts they accept. The total amount of carbon that resides in the top 1 m of soil under agricultural frontiers has a median value of 632 GtC (gigatons of carbon) (RCP 8.5, ensemble) and 539 GtC (RCP 4.5, ensemble), with a minimum RCP 8.5 ensemble value of 400 and a maximum value of 991 GtC (Table 2). The journal PLOS One has an impact factor of about 2.7, which is modest, but not bad. PLOS ONE, the largest scholarly journal in the world, continues to shrink.. Such clauses are rather uncommon elsewhere, in fact Hindawi editors do not have any contracts at all (according to James Coyne, also PLOS One editors sign no editorial contacts), and work according to their own conscience as scientists. The situation is very much different with Frontiers editors. PLOS ONE, the largest scholarly journal in the world, continues to shrink. This is what their contract instructs the Frontiers associate Editors: “Make the   final   decision   whether   or   not   a   paper   is   acceptable   for publication by ensuring all quality, validity and ethical standards have been met and that all Review Editors agree to the publication.
