2014 CrossRef Annual Meeting Peer Review Panel presentation entitled "Do it once, do it well – questioning submission and peer review traditions" by Janne-Tuomas Seppänen of the Peerage of Science.
Is it really in the best interest of journals to insist on exclusive isolated submissions, and exclusive opaque nomination of reviewers, and exclusive usage of those reviews? Publishers are increasingly moving towards re-use of reviews and avoidance of submission iteration via internal cascade models, but a broader liberation of submission and peer review processes leads to many common goods that also directly benefit journals. I will discuss how, and more importantly why, Peerage of Science offers these new approaches for scientists and publishers.
