Independent peer review services

Independent peer review services

Independent peer review platforms separate the review from the publishing process. The primary aim of the review services is to provide a user-friendly and transparent review process, which benefits both the authors and the reviewers. The review service is not affiliated with a journal or publishing house.

Repository based publishing and review

Repository based publishing and review

Repositories can also offer peer review functionalities. By turning repositories into evaluation platforms the quality control of the scholarly communication process is given back to the research communities. Explore the repository based publishing and review scenery.

Review applications

Review applications

Preprint related review platforms and tools facilitate a wide scientific discussion about preprint materials. The repository based dissemination and review forums can take a variety of forms ranging from repository specific discussion forums to providing peer review to content grouped as collections (overlay journals). Some platforms have a built-in commenting or peer review function on the platform, while others allow for crowd-sourced discussion on preprints in a specific field of study.

Peer Review

Peer Review

Peer review is the process by which a piece of scientific research is assessed by others —a researcher’s fellow peers— who are suitably qualified and able to judge the piece of work under review in terms of novelty, soundness and significance.

Open Peer Review (OPR)

Open Peer Review (OPR)

OPR – although often narrowly defined as peer review where author/reviewer identities are disclosed to one another (see example) – is best understood as an umbrella term for a number of overlapping ways that peer review models can be adapted in line with the aims of Open Science, including making reviewer and author identities open, publishing review reports and enabling greater participation in the peer review process. The full list of traits is:

  • Open identities: Authors and reviewers are aware of each other’s identity
  • Open reports: Review reports are published alongside the relevant article.
  • Open participation: The wider community are able to contribute to the review process.
  • Open interaction: Direct reciprocal discussion between author(s) and reviewers, and/or between reviewers, is allowed and encouraged.
  • Open pre-review manuscripts: Manuscripts are made immediately available (e.g., via pre-print servers like arXiv) in advance of any formal peer review procedures.
  • Open final-version commenting: Review or commenting on final “version of record” publications.
  • Open platforms (“decoupled review”): Review is facilitated by a different organizational entity than the venue of publication.

Peers

Peers

The “peer” in peer review is gaining a new meaning moving away from the notion of an accredited colleague to a participant in the review process. The peer here becomes a peer in this sense through the quality of his/her participation. Contributing to the ongoing review, the peer becomes involved in a networked knowledge exchange where not the credentials of the participants considered to be the main asset, but the expertise and trustworthiness one brings to the discussion.

Open Science

Open Science

Open Science is the practice of science in such a way that others can collaborate and contribute, where research data, lab notes and other research processes are freely available, under terms that enable reuse, redistribution and reproduction of the research and its underlying data and methods.
