Recode staff writer Matt Zapotosky and journalist Sam Machkovech report on a new study finding that America’s manuscript editing systems are increasingly losing their luster.
The authors of the study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, analyzed nearly 200,000 published manuscripts.
It found that for every $1 million in annual revenue, an average of about $6,000 in value was lost.
That’s down from an average annual loss of about 30 percent in the mid-2000s.
But it’s still a lot of money.
The study estimated that the value of manuscripts in research had fallen to $2.8 billion in 2015.
And the decline is accelerating.
The decline in value for America’s publishers is even more pronounced than in Europe, where researchers have noted a sharp decline in their publications.
The most recent data from the United Kingdom shows a sharp rise in the decline in research publications from $1.7 billion in 2014 to $4.6 billion in 2016.
The US is experiencing a similarly dramatic drop in research revenue from $9.1 billion in 2013 to $3.4 billion in 2017.
This decline is also happening in the world of academic publishing.
The average value of a published article on a major journal like Nature is about $8 million, according to a study published in October in the American Economic Review.
That compares with an average for the humanities, where the average article is around $10 million.
And that’s in a field where publishing is growing rapidly.
For instance, a new report from the Oxford Martin School found that by 2020, more than 20 percent of U.S. universities will be publishing more than 1,000 articles per year.
That means that the authors of new research papers are spending $1,400 a year on research and editing costs.
The rise in research costs means that American publishers are losing the incentive to publish, the authors wrote in the paper.
“As the number of manuscripts published declines, the pressure to publish rises, and publishers lose confidence in their ability to produce high quality research,” they wrote.
That could lead to a drop in the number and quality of research papers published in academic journals.
As a result, the number, quality, and frequency of research articles are expected to decline in the next several years.
And those declines could be especially pronounced in the humanities.
In the United States, more and more institutions are trying to cut costs by cutting back on teaching and research.
Universities have also been investing heavily in online resources to cut down on paper.
But even as publishers cut back on their publishing efforts, there are still plenty of researchers and professors who are still publishing in print.
In a 2016 study, the journal Science reported that about 40 percent of all U.N. researchers are still working in the fields of mathematics and science, and more than half of those researchers are in the sciences.
It’s likely that this trend will continue as the U.K. government has been increasing the amount of research funding that goes into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
But researchers and publishers still face a problem: They’re still getting paid for the work they do.
And they don’t seem to know how to make that work.
