Publishing is a central point of Computer Science (well, probably any science), so should this site allow questions about publication issues (this could include any sort of publication, e.g. conferences, theses, journals, ...) that are directly related, and specific to, Computer Science?
Publishing is a central point of computer science research. I believe Theoretical Computer Science allows questions about the theoretical CS academic community, so questions specifically about publications in TCS could go there. For general questions about academic matters, including publication, ask on Academia. Even if the question is domain-specific, that is an appropriate venue.
I don't think questions about publication should be on-topic here. This is a site about computer science, not about the social processes around research on computer science.
It's my impression that this site was designed to fill the gap between SO (a professional CS community/programming community) and the theoretical CS Stack Exchange site, which is for "research-level questions in theoretical computer science." Therefore, the purpose of this site seems more for undergraduates, for whom publishing is decidedly not a concern. I say publishing questions should go to http://cstheory.stackexchange.com (if they'll welcome them) or the Academia SE site mentioned earlier.
Publishing your findings in the most general sense is an integral part of knowledge aggregation and transfer. I think we should support people as best we can with that, as long as the question deals with a specific, computer science related issue (say, for instance, notation or which prior knowledge to assume).
General questions about academic publishing should probably go to academia.SE, though.
