Re: [AUDITORY] arXiv web of trust

Personally, no. As arXiv typically hosts so-called pre-prints, a free "archive" as it were, to allow free access to journal publications, making it different than a "publication" site. However, the fact that many authors seem to put documents on arXiv *before* their papers are accepted, and that these papers can even then be rejected while the arXiv document remains, means that arXiv is an unreliable reference for citations of published works. ArXiv is not accepted in some journals as a peer-reviewed reference for that very reason.

Subject: [AUDITORY] arXiv web of trust

Is anyone publishing on arXiv at the moment ? It seems that to publish there they rely on a web of trust.

There is an Audio and Speech section of arXiv which would suit our community.
