Examing the Peer-Review Process


Duke University LIbraries’ blog, Scholarly Communications @ Duke, has an interesting piece examining the peer-review process, and how peer-review journal content is presented in many of the large databases we all use. The post, entitled “The big picture about peer-review,” is authored by Kevin Smith, Duke’s first Scholarly Communications Officer. He makes a compelling case for “Open peer-review, where an article is published along with the comments that were made about it during the evaluation process.” To read the full article, go to: http://blogs.library.duke.edu/scholcomm/2013/10/10/the-big-picture-about-peer-review/#sthash.It6xn0zH.dpuf.
