4open sign ASAPbio open letter on the publication of peer review reports

4open is pleased to support the initiative outlined in ASAPbio’s open letter o help improve transparency within peer review. Open peer review is one of the four key pillars upon which 4open is built, as the Journal believes it encourages a more holistic view of a published piece of work, allowing for more thorough critical evaluation.

In February 2018, members of the scholarly publishing community assembled to discuss upcoming advances regarding peer review techniques at The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Headquarters. This meeting resulted in the agreement that publishing peer review reports will improve the transparency of the publishing process.

Read a summary of the event here.

4open will implement this change in peer review policy early in 2019, enabling authors and peer reviewers to opt in or out of open peer review reports.
