OPEN PEER REVIEW
Open peer review (OPR) can hence be seen as an umbrella term for the variety of these models, aiming to open up and reshape the traditionally closed processes of peer review, including post-publication review, online peer commentary, the publication of review reports as legitimate research outputs in themselves, disclosure of reviewer identities, and so on. These differing forms of openness, designed to address differing deficiencies in traditional peer review, will in turn be of interest to differing research communities and disciplines. It is perhaps safe to say that no one model of OPR will be suitable for all disciplines.
This workshop aims to bring together all interested stakeholders to facilitate discussion on these themes. It will equip participants with a fuller theoretical understanding of OPR models, a critical overview of the practical implementation of OPR models, OPR’s place in the wider Open Science movement. Concrete outcomes will be discussion of and validation of a new controlled vocabulary of forms of OPR and recommendations for the systematization of research into the effectiveness of differing forms of OPR.
Program and speakers as well as concrete information about registration will be announced soon.
