STM has recognised a need for identifying and standardising definitions and terminology in (open) peer review practices. A peer review taxonomy that is used across publishers will help make the peer review process for articles and journals more transparent, and enable the community to better assess and compare peer review practices between different journals. With this background, STM has set up a working group to develop such standardised definitions and associated best practice recommendations.
This webinar kicks off the public consultation for a standard taxonomy for peer review that is being developed as part of an STM initiative. The speakers are:
Bahar Mehmani, Review Experience Lead, Elsevier
Lois Jones, Peer Review Manager, American Psychological Association
Joris van Rossum, STM
