Publishing, sharing, and disseminating their research results are among scientists’

most important objectives. This process, which consists of stages full of

intensive labor and care, is very laborious and may not always result in a positive

outcome. A review of the scientific literature indicates that some non-academic

authors publish more than academics. On the other hand, the presence

of a widespread reproducibility problem even in highly cited publications negatively

affects the reliability of scientific findings. Open-science policies and

public peer review practices are needed to overcome these problems.
