      [Purposes] This paper investigates the "integration of editing and research" among academic journals and analyzes the feasible paths, which is expected to boost the scientific research and competence of academic journal editors. [Methods] Through questionnaire survey and case analysis, we probed into the status quo of the "integration of editing and research" among academic journal editors, the favorable conditions, and the unfavorable conditions. In addition, another questionnaire was designed to investigate the willingness of scholars to participate in the editing of academic journals. Four typical editorial offices of academic journals and two editors were selected as examples for the deep analysis of the feasibility of the integration. [Findings] (1) Most academic journal editors have participated in scientific research and the majority has recognized the necessity of scientific research. However, more efforts should be made to enhance the research. As for the favorable conditions for the integration, many a respondent claimed that scientific research was beneficial to the editing and their self-development, and many editors thought interest was the major driver of the research. The heavy workload and limited spare time are the major culprits that restrict the research, followed by the lack of professionals. (2) About half of the scholars want to be part-time editors of journals. (3) The support of supervisors and organizers can promote the integration. [Conclusions] It is necessary and feasible to integrate scientific research in academic journals. Efforts should be made by supervisors and organizers to support the scientific research of editors and editors themselves should make full use of favorable conditions for the research. In addition, journals should encourage scholars to join the editorial team, so as to enhance the integration.

      [Purposes] This paper explores a universal coding scheme for independent page number of Chinese scientific journals, which is expected to serve as reference for digital development of the journals. [Methods] Literature research, case analysis, and comparative analysis were used to dissect the concept connotation, coding scheme, practical cases, and advantages of the independent page number mode. [Findings] Two schemes for the independent page number mode are available: mixed coding and pure coding. Journals can include year, letter, article number, issue number, serial number, column code, and others for the independent coding of a single paper as needed. Free from the limitations of continuous coding of multiple papers, this mode allows for real-time coding and fast citation of a single paper, reduces the workload of editing and proofreading, further shortens the publishing cycle, enables early publication of research outcomes, and improves the status of journals. [Conclusions] In the context of digital publishing, independent page number mode can avoid the problems caused by continuous page numbers, thus promoting the development of Chinese scientific journals and boosting open science.

      [Purposes] By comparing the journals included in the leading journals of Excellence Action Plan for China STM Journals (hereinafter referred to as "leading journals") with their world leading counterparts, this paper explores the countermeasures to narrow the gap between China's scientific journals and the world's top journals, thus providing a reference for developing China's top scientific journals. [Methods] The index data of leading journals and the corresponding world top journals were retrieved from Web of Science and journal official websites and summarized. Then, we analyzed the development of leading journals in recent five years. [Findings] The main citation indexes of 22 leading journals were significantly improved. A total of 4025 papers (articles and reviews) were published by the leading journals in 2020, up 53.0% from the 2630 papers in 2019. The average number of articles of single leading journal published in 2020 was 183, an increase of 53.0% compared with the 120 in 2019. The total cites of leading journals surged from 99767 in 2019 to 153610 in 2020. The average cited half-life of leading journals was 3.73 years in 2020, in comparison of the 9.35 years of their counterparts. A total of 16 leading journals were put on the list of top 10% in corresponding discipline in JCR, and 10 on the list of top 5%. [Conclusions] Leading journals should establish a sound development mode, dynamically adjust the development goal and direction, follow national major strategies to meet the development needs, attach importance to talent development and reserve, and build an independent and controllable international communication platform and channel, so as to lead the development of the industry, achieve sustainable development, and drive the overall development and progress of the journal industry in China.

      [Purposes] This paper aims to clarify the internationalization of China's English journals of humanities and social sciences (JHSS) and thus provide a new mindset for internationalization evaluation of English JHSS. [Methods] With quantifiable indexes on the internationalization of academic influence, formal features, and indexing and distribution, the evaluation model of internationalization of China's English JHSS was developed. Multidimensional indicators on internationalization of the journals were mapped in four-quadrant charts and three-dimensional structure diagrams based on the methods of descriptive analysis, correlation analysis, and factor analysis. [Findings] A total of 53.85% of the English JHSS in China were founded after 2010. Many of them run independently and the majority make full use of international platforms for publishing and distribution to achieve internationalization. A total of 34.62% of them are "star journals" with low level of academic influence internationalization and high level of formal feature internationalization, and 26.92% are "general journals" with low level of academic influence internationalization and formal feature internationalization. [Conclusions] At the moment, "bringing-in" dominates the internationalization methods of China's English JHSS. "Professional journals" play a significant role in "going global" and more efforts should be made to "go further".
