Workshop: Open Peer Review


Date: June 7th 2016
Location: Göttingen State and University Library, in conjunction with the ELPUB 2016 Conference
Target groups: publishers, journal editors, librarians, repository managers, interested researchers

Digital networked technologies are reshaping scholarly communication, yet the predominant model of peer review remains the one which has been in place since the 1950s. As this model is subject to increasing criticism for being, for example, slow, unaccountable, wasteful of resources, and lacking in incentives, it makes sense to test and examine the ways in which new technologies enable new models of peer review. While a variety of initiatives, led in the main by publishers and researchers, have to date been implemented or proposed, the academic literature around open peer review remains scarce and chaotic and the names of differing forms of open peer review vocabulary often ill-defined.
