Open Peer Review at ScienceOpen

Open Peer Review at ScienceOpen

Review by academic peers is at the core of the scientific publishing process. By making reviews and comments accessible, open peer review practices build upon the traditional peer review process. Transparency helps to enhance the reliability and credibility of both peer review and research results. The visible and shared feedback can foster collaboration and increase public trust in scientific findings.  

Since its inception, ScienceOpen has been actively promoting and facilitating open peer review, both within its network and across the whole digital publishing landscape. Over the years, we have continued to explore open peer review tools and workflows to support preprint management, post-publication review, and the creation of open access journals based on open peer review.

Accessible and reusable data is an important part of open science practice. However, to be able to share and build on data, we first need to generate it. Ensuring that the methods used to generate research data are transparent, clearly documented, reproducible, and reusable is an equally crucial element of the scientific process. Standardized and reproducible research methods not only facilitate the generation of reliable data but also contribute to the overall transparency and credibility of scientific research. Join ScienceOpen in celebrating Love Methods Week and promoting open, reusable, and easily verifiable methods.

Is science a strong-link problem and peer review counterproductive? A pledge for community-driven evaluation of research quality and impact

Is science a strong-link problem and peer review counterproductive? A pledge for community-driven evaluation of research quality and impact

In a thought-provoking blog post, Adam Mastroianni (Columbia Business School) recently stated: “There are two kinds of problems in the world: strong-link problems and weak-link problems.” For weak-link problems, ” the overall quality depends on how good the worst stuff is”. (1) To fix them, we need to eliminate the weakest links or make them stronger. That’s why we have strict quality standards for food. Nobody wants to die because they picked the wrong tuna sandwich off the shelf!

Science, on the other hand, is a strong-link problem, Mastroianni argues: “In the long run, the best stuff is all that matters. The bad stuff doesn’t matter at all.”

In this guest blog, Sebastian Alers debates and analyzes some recent attitudes on science and peer review, in an attempt to call and draw attention to the importance of community-driven evaluation of research quality and impact.
