Documents Reviewing peer review: a quantitative analysis of peer review
Casati, Fabio and Marchese, Maurizio and Mirylenka, Katsiaryna and Ragone, Azzurra (2010) Reviewing peer review: a quantitative analysis of peer review. UNSPECIFIED. (Unpublished)
As a professor and researcher, one of my most time-consuming tasks is performing peer review. That is, reading and commenting on articles submitted to conferences and journals, proposals submitted to granting agencies, theses submitted for degrees, and promotion dossiers (which themselves require reading several papers). In this post I will point out the strengths and weaknesses of the current peer review systems, as I see them, and make some suggestions for change.
It may be what epidemiologists call “ascertainment bias” (seeing what you want to see), but I detect the beginning of the end of prepublication peer review. The latest death knell is the appearance of a “ liquid journal ” where scientists can post papers without peer review and papers in evolution, data sets, pieces of computer code, or blogs.
