Background Our aim is to highlight the benefits and limitations of open and non-anonymized peer review. Our argument is based on the literature and on responses to a survey on the reviewing process of alt.chi, a more or less open review track within the so-called Computer Human Interaction (CHI) conference, the predominant conference in the field of human-computer interaction. This track currently is the only implementation of an open peer review process in the field of human-computer… Expand

Attitudes and practices of open data, preprinting, and peer-review—A cross sectional study on Croatian scientists
Overall, Croatian scientists’ attitudes towards these topics were generally neutral, and attitudes of scientist who previously engaged in open peer-review or preprinting were higher than of scientists that did not (Md 3.5 vs. 3.3, P<0.001, and Md 3.6 vs 3.2, respectively). Expand
Overburdening of peer reviewers: A multi‐stakeholder perspective on causes and effects
Peer review of manuscripts is labour‐intensive and time‐consuming. Individual reviewers might feel themselves overburdened with the amount of reviewing they are requested to do. Aiming to explore howExpand

Survey on open peer review: Attitudes and experience amongst editors, authors and reviewers
The results of this cross-disciplinary survey show the majority of respondents to be believe that OPR as a general concept should be mainstream scholarly practice, and high levels of support for most of the traits of OPR, particularly open interaction, open reports and final-version commenting.

Emerging trends in peer review—a survey
Two major trends are identified: the rapidly expanding role of preprint servers that dispense with traditional peer review altogether, and the growth of “non-selective review,” focusing on papers' scientific quality rather than their perceived importance and novelty. Expand

What is open peer review? A systematic review
A pragmatic definition of open peer review is proposed as an umbrella term for a number of overlapping ways that peer review models can be adapted in line with the aims of Open Science, including making reviewer and author identities open, publishing review reports and enabling greater participation in the peer review process.

A multi-disciplinary perspective on emergent and future innovations in peer review
There is considerable scope for new peer review initiatives to be developed, each with their own potential issues and advantages, and a novel hybrid platform model is proposed that could resolve many of the socio-technical issues associated with peer review, and potentially disrupt the entire scholarly communication system.

The results indicate that the costs, mostly logistic challenges and side effects, outnumber its benefits and mostly regard difficulty for authors in blinding papers, for reviewers in understanding the increment with respect to previous work from the same authors, and for organizers to manage a complex transition.
