Uneven Distribution of the Journal, the Peer Review System and Post Countermeasures to Social Evaluation

Currently, the only medium in which research results can be posted in this society is paper; there are three issues annually. However, the number of posts from members is concentrated overwhelmingly in the Special Issue, leading to a shrinking circulation in both English and Japanese. The impact of this situation on, say, inability to acquire research grant, makes the very survival of the Society uncertain; major changes are needed. As a workaround, the Journal should be utilized as a place to announce research for members and employ a unified application of peer review for it. In this paper, I will raise points about future reforms.
