New Directions 2019 | Disrupting Peer Review


Jessica Polka, David Mellor, Damian Pattinson, Heather Staines, Sophie Reisz

Peer review continues to be an essential part of the formal publication process; however, scholarly research is in a constant state of development. In the last few years, there has been a wave of innovation in peer review research, platforms, discussions, tools, and services, coupled with the ongoing and parallel evolution of scholarly communication as it potentially adjusts to various “open science” initiatives. Check out this interactive session as we explore badging as transparency indicators, the impact of peer-reviewing preprints, and utilizing communities to separate process from the publication workflow.

Refereed Preprints


Release Date: 08/10/2020, Damian Pattinson, John Inglis, Kathleen Shearer, Gabe Stein, Jessica Polka, Thomas Lemberger

Preprints are rapidly changing the scholarly communication landscape by accelerating dissemination and enabling auxiliary innovations. For example, several new initiatives have begun to enrich preprints with expert commentary. Some focus on adding formal reviewer reports to generate refereed preprints, which can provide context for readers, accelerate and inform editorial decisions at journals, reduce the peer review bottleneck, and help evaluators understand the impact and quality of a new manuscript. Join us for a panel featuring experts with first-hand experience in the production of this commentary. We'll explore questions such as: -What are author, reader, and reviewer reactions to refereed preprints? -Will they help publishing become more efficient or duplicate effort? -What will be the impact of refereed preprints on journals?
