Data and Methods

Open Editors collects publicly available information about the editors and editorial boards of scholarly journals through a technique called webscraping, whereby a script accesses the websites of the publishers to extract the relevant information. The codes (programmed in R) are available at GitHub.

Currently, only the journals of the following 22 publishers were taken into account:

For more details, please see the pre-print which outlines the method and data sample with greater precision. It also discusses issues of diversity and intersectionality; of linking the dataset with PIDs (persistent identifiers) such as ORCID and ROR; and of current limitations regarding the scope and coverage of the data.

The whole data dump – two CSV-files of ca. 111 MB – is available at GitHub (in the "Output"-folder).
