Approaches to Peer Review
Published: 28 January 2015 by MDPI in 1st Electronic Conference of MDPI Editors-in-Chief session Running a Journal
Abstract: Peer review is the most widely accepted model for setting a threshold of published scholarly material. With the move to digital publishing, it has come under attack with suggestions that it is 'broken', overloading reviewers and possibly no longer fit for purpose. This presentation discusses the challenges for peer review and some emerging new models. Ultimately, we may need to take a step back to ask what peer review is for and how these aims can best be achieved.
