Open peer review: will it last or not, and how safe is it?

Peer review as we understand it and apply it as researchers relates to the appraisal of submissions to journals, funders or conferences, in order to trigger funding or publishing decisions. Traditionally, for publications, this was done in almost complete secrecy between the author (s), editor (s) and reviewers.

The literature on the subject is full of cases of excesses and biases that have made the process a subject of contention and problems. Experimentation around open peer review, both pre- and post-publication, has gained momentum in recent years (e.g. F 1000, Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, PubPeer, RIO Journal) and is introducing a sense of equity and transparency into a process that was not known for it.

Though the experiences are still recent and need time to be assessed, the effects of this unbridled openness are largely unexplored.

In this workshop, we propose to discuss and investigate these questions about the future of peer review in an a world dominated by Internet and its proclivity to openness.
