We are committed to peer review and the role it plays in helping to ensure published research is accurate, trustworthy, and meets the highest standards of research within a given field. Today sees the start of Peer Review Week and we are taking this opportunity to honor this fundamental part of the publishing process.
Throughout this week, we’ll be highlighting the valuable work of organizations such as ORCID, Sense about Science and ScienceOpen and sharing the key peer review resources we have across Editor Resources and our relaunched Author Services site. For links to our Editor Resources ‘greatest hits’ (those crucial posts used again and again), follow us on Twitter (@TandFEditors ) and check out #peerrevwk15 as this week unfolds.
Peer review is not without its criticisms but it’s clear from the comments we receive, and the conversations we have, that authors really value the system, the input of the hardworking reviewers and editors, and the difference the process can make to scholarly communication. We think that’s worth celebrating this Peer Review Week.
