My colleagues and I submitted a "paper", Linked SDMX Data:

Well, since this is an open process, and we love open, reviews are most 
welcome either at SWJ, or drop feedback at the canonical URI of the effort:

I realize that mentioning this is out of the ordinary on this list, but, 
wouldn't it be great if the community is fully transparent in their 
efforts? Or is doing "science" is replaced by "step aside dude, my 
h-index is this big!" these days?

Bon week-end :)
