I'm interested in selecting journals to publish my research on AI Governance.
- I heard that "Futures" is good: "For the interdisciplinary study of futures, anticipation and foresight. Futures aims to build substantive research and knowledge about the relationships between humanity and its possible futures. It welcomes: new knowledge about humanity's diverse anticipatory practices and how to understand, challenge, develop or enhance them; novel futures-oriented research emerging at the intersections between and beyond disciplines that provides insights into humanity's (and posthumanity's) changing relationship with the future; and the highest quality scholarship in the field of futures/prospective studies."
- Global Policy
- Big Data and Cognitive Computing:
- What are other good places to publish?
EDIT: Separate note on Why it's important to publish AI Governance research
We may have the (very nice to have) problem that the EA Forum is so good that AI governance researchers publish stuff here instead of in peer-reviewed journals, or they publish on their blogs to avoid lengthy processes.
I don't have publishing requirements for my PhD, but I still think that publishing research in peer-reviewed journals is very important for the field of AI Governance in order to 1) Attract new researchers to the field; 2) Gain feedback from other researchers and test our ideas; 3) Increase the legitimacy of EA-aligned research.
There is a significant trade-off between "publish online fast and make progress fast" and "build a respectable, legit academic field"; and I'm generally inclined to favor the first option, but would highlight that in some specific cases (e.g. writing papers for a PhD), it makes more sense to publish in peer-reviewed journals because your research is already "academically-formatted" anyway.
