One thing that came out of the discussion of AoIR's 2004 inquiry into
whether or not or how to have a journal (a working group that Monica
Murero chaired) was how much international attitudes toward
publishing and publishing venues vary. Several untenured Americans
(both profs and students) said that they would never publish in an
online AoIR journal because they wouldn't get enough credit for it.
People from Australia found that absurd in the context of their own
experiences. As usual, AoIR finds itself trying to balance competing
perspectives and needs amongst disciplinary, methodological, and
national ways of doing things.
