A standard Taxonomy for Peer Review – Presentation of First Draft

This webinar kicks off the public consultation for a standard taxonomy for peer review that is being developed as part of an STM initiative

About this Event

STM has recognised a need for identifying and standardising definitions and terminology in (open) peer review practices. A peer review taxonomy that is used across publishers will help make the peer review process for articles and journals more transparent, and enable the community to better assess and compare peer review practices between different journals. With this background, STM has set up a working group to develop such standardised definitions and associated best practice recommendations.

In this webinar, the first draft of the peer review taxonomy will be shared, which marks the official launch of the open consultation phase.
