WikiJournal Policy[edit source]

@Stevenfruitsmaak, Evolution and evolvability, and Eyoungstrom: I'm not familiar with the policies of WikiJournal regarding attempts to blank and delete submitted articles. Please clarify. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 03:17, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

@Dave Braunschweig: We'd not yet come to consensus on that (discussion here). We've so far agreed that they shouldn't be deleted by default, however it's also pretty rare for preprints to be deleted in other servers (arxiv, OSF, preprints.org etc). It messes up the tracking stats for Category:Article_preprints_declined_for_publication_by_a_WikiJournal. At the very least, I think we should retain the metadata and abstract, even if the rest of the content is blanked. How well does that fit with current wikiversity policies?

@Evolution and evolvability: We generally allow authors to request speedy deletion of their own works, but not once others have contributed to the effort. It could easily be argued that a reviewed WikiJournal article has contributions to it on the talk page, and therefore is not eligible for self-deletion.
Where I think we may need to consider and perhaps adapt would be roughly described under "right to be forgotten". Wikimedia has a standard approach to removing Personally Identifiable Information upon request. I think the article should stay, but it may become necessary to remove or anonymize any information that identifies the original author, if requested. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 03:50, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

@PARTHASARATHI.N: Pending further discussion, you may not blank or delete this reviewed WikJournal article. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 03:50, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Rejected reviews will not tend people to read as they might think contents as inconsistent.That is why self deleted.Sorry for removing info."PARTHASARATHI.N (discusscontribs) 03:56, 23 June 2020 (UTC)"

@Dave Braunschweig: as mentioned by T.Shafee above, we are still discussing the process. In general, if your work is submitted to a science journal, you have the right to request it to be deleted. Otherwise, if you try to submit it elsewhere, it is likely to be rejected due to detection of plagiarism. Maybe blanking isn't such a bad idea, perhaps with a template that this article is now rejected for publication, but that details (for transparancy and other reasons) can be found in the article history? Would that work from a Wikiversity general perspective? --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 19:44, 24 June 2020 (UTC)
