Menage a Quoi? Optimal Number of Peer Reviewers Abstract Peer review represents the primary mechanism used by funding agencies to allocate financial support and by journals to select manuscripts for publication, yet recent Cochrane reviews determined literature on peer review best practice is sparse. Key to improving the process are reduction of inherent vulnerability to high degree of randomness and, from an economic perspective, limiting both the substantial indirect costs related to reviewer time invested and direct administrative costs to funding agencies, publishers and research institutions. Use of additional reviewers per application may increase reliability and decision consistency, but adds to overall cost and burden. The optimal number of reviewers per application, while not known, is thought to vary with accuracy of judges or evaluation methods. Citation: Snell RR (2015) Menage a Quoi?

European Commission The European Commission took a big step towards open science in Europe. All projects receiving Horizon 2020 funding will have the obligation to make sure any peer reviewed journal article they publish is openly accessible, free of charge. The open access policy is summarized in a brief factsheet. For the details on open access applicable to beneficiaries in projects funded under Horizon 2020, please see the Guidelines on Open Access to Scientific Publications and Research Data. Horizon 2020 has a limited pilot action on open access to research data. Participating projects will be required to develop a Data Management Plan (DMP) (see the Guidelines on Data Management), in which they will specify what data will be open.

They use licensing to make content available both to individual readers and to those affiliated with libraries, research and educational institutions, or corporations. Publishers are able to license the use of the content they publish on open access terms (i.e. free of charge, unrestricted access and unrestricted reuse) to targeted readers and the wider public.
