Reviewer gets files, disappears

We recently secured a reviewer on a niche piece with few potential reviewers. While our journal does not have a policy on DA-RT (for reasons of this forum) this particular piece was database-focused. When the reviewer requested all of the prior materials, referencing DA-RT, we contacted the author a...

Practical problems in the field

Real-existing fieldwork would have trouble with some of the bureaucratic requirements outlined by the DA-RT initiative. I obtain extremely relevant information by sitting in city council meetings, going to demonstrations, by talkng to people on buses, by chance encounters. Sometimes people tell me t...

Ethnic / religious tension settings

I posted in the first round about the dangers posed by DA-RT on research on nationalism. In a related move, the Association for the Study of Nationalities released a statement that DA-RT poses a danger to our ability to conduct research.

I am not a Turkey specialist, but have cooperated with a number of Turkish academics because it was for years an exciting place for politics research. Not only are my col...
