Question Answered

Publishing Modification Comments (Shaw-Barseghyan-2019) is an attempt to answer the following question: Should the discussions concerning a suggested modification be published? If so, when and how should they be published?

See Workflow - Publishing Modification Comments for more details.

Description

In the scientonomic workflow, the discussions concerning suggested modifications should be published once a communal consensus is reached and the respective verdict is recorded in the encyclopedia. The discussions are to be published in the journal as special commentary articles co-authored by all participants of the discussion or in special edited collections. While it might be tempting to only publish those discussions that caused significant disagreement in the community, such an approach alternative solution may inadvertently incentivize dissent and disagreement for the sake of getting published. In contrast, by publishing all discussions, we incentivize all commenting without skewing the incentive towards disagreement.
