Digital Publishing Workshop: New Perspectives on Peer Review

October 19, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Butler Library, 535 W. 114 St., New York, NY 10027 Room 213
Who decides what is published, and how do the people who make those decisions shape the scholarly record? Peer review has been standard by which scholarly publications assess the integrity and quality of the writing that has been submitted to their publications. At its best, peer review is an opportunity for collaboration ; at its worst, it can decrease diversity, support bias, and mask unethical behavior. Can we improve peer review? In this workshop we’ll define, debate, and experiment with peer review, discussing new (and some radical!) approaches to Open Review, inviting reviewers, and editorial initiatives towards inclusion. We’ll also develop our own skills in thoughtful and constructive critique as referees.
