The future of preprint peer review
In this webinar we look at the current state of preprint peer review and share our thoughts on its future. Tatiana Giraud, a CNRS senior scientist at the University Paris Saclay, Professor at the Ecole Polytechnque and College de France, member of the French Academy of Science and the Peer Community In (PCI) association, will present the PCI initiative, and share her experience reviewing and recommending preprints, her involvement with the PCI, and her outlook on preprint peer review. Nonia Pariente, the Editor-in-Chief of PLOS Biology, will discuss how editors interact with preprints across PLOS, summarising the results of the PLOS preprint commenting pilot, in which editors looked at preprint comments during the peer-review process, as well as PLOS’es interactions with preprint review initiatives. Thomas Lemberger, Deputy Head of Scientific Publications at EMBO, will present some of the data obtained from running the preprint peer review platform Review Commons. These results will be discussed in the broader context of a cultural shift in the practice of peer review and the role of refereed preprints in the early dissemination of peer reviewed research. Paul Shannon, Head of Technology at eLife, will introduce Sciety, a new web-based tool to enable scholars to discover preprint content via a network of curation and evaluation output. Paul will talk about how Sciety brings peer review, highlights, automated screening and recommendation of preprints together from 16 diverse groups of scientists, while allowing individuals to curate and share lists of preprints to help others navigate the preprint landscape. Maria Levchenko, Europe PMC Community Manager, will talk about Europe PMC as a unified platform to discover preprints and linked resources, such as community peer reviews. Maria will also look at ways to filter preprints in the absence of journal titles and the role that aggregators like Europe PMC can play to prevent information overload.
