GDB6Public peer review in open access publications: pros and cons
|Conveners: Bárbara Ferreira , Thies Martin Rasmussen|
Thu, 21 Apr, 15:30–17:00 / Room E1
This open, public peer review system aims to foster scientific discussion and improve quality assurance by making the peer review process more efficient and transparent. But critics argue that publishing papers prior to peer review contributes to the noise of science as the non-peer-reviewed draft of the paper can be freely distributed, even if the journal ends up rejecting it for publication.
In this debate, panelists will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of open, public peer review.
