What can we do to increase trust in peer review? How can we encourage more researchers to take part in peer review? These were just some of the issues considered in a panel discussion on ‘Righting Peer Review’ at the recent Advancing Research Communication & Scholarship (ARCS) conference in Philadelphia.
The author of this blog concludes: “…righting peer review will not take place overnight. We are living in exciting times of peer review innovation. We need to work together to increase trust in the peer review process, and to create a system which provides proper credit for peer reviewers for the valuable, vital work they contribute to science.”.
