Transforming Peer Review Bibliography

Posted in Bibliographies, Digital Scholarship Publications, Publishing, Scholarly Communication, Scholarly Journals on January 13th, 2014 by Charles W. Bailey, Jr.

Digital Scholarship has released the Transforming Peer Review Bibliography, which includes selected English-language articles that are useful in understanding significant transformations to the peer review process.

It is concerned with major changes to peer review, such as open peer review (excluding just revealing the identity of traditional peer reviewers) and post-publication review.

Most sources have been published from January 2010 through December 2012; however, a limited number of earlier key sources are also included. The bibliography includes links to freely available versions of included works. If such versions are unavailable, italicized links to the publishers' descriptions are provided.
