MediaCommons and NYU Press jointly undertook a study of technologies, practices, and desires for open, online peer-to-peer review in humanities-based scholarly communication. This white paper contains critical questions raised around shifting peer review norms and strategies for moving forward with open peer review to constitute important progress in both delineating the core debates as well as fleshing out specific areas within them that require more nuanced assessment modes. The conclusions and recommendations drafted, focus on ways that communities might begin to determine for themselves what their best practices might be, and how they might put them into practice.
