More means less
Managing overflow in science publishing
in Overwhelmed by overflows?

Overflow – or surplus, excess, overspill – is usually understood as the opposite of scarcity. Yet as Czarniawska and Löfgren (2012) noted, overflow can be construed as either positive, when more means better, or as negative, when there is too much, even of a good thing. But no matter how it is defined and whose perspective one considers, overflow must be managed – controlled or coped with. Earlier studies revealed a variety of practical definitions of overflow and a variety of managing devices and ways of coping with overflow. Acknowledging the value of earlier contributions to the study of overflow and drawing on those insights, in this chapter the focus is on a phenomenon not studied previously: overflow in biomedical science publications.
