Peer review is typically conducted behind closed doors. There's been a recent push to make open peer review standard, but what's often left out of these conversations are the potential downsides. To illustrate this, Dan and James discuss a recent instance of open peer review that led to considerable online debate.
Here's what they cover...
- How should we navigate the open review of preprints?
- Gate keepers gonna gate keep, but is this better out in the open?
- Weaponising openness
- Some people don't realise that some data can’t be shared
- Should the reviewers of rejected papers follow them to the next journal?
- When bad papers that you reject pop up in another journal, unchanged
- Does the venue and timing of the open peer review matter?
- Signing your reviews
- Using publons to track your reviews
