From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Open peer review denotes several, closely related forms of scholarly peer review:

  • open-identity or attributed peer review (as opposed to anonymous peer review);
  • open-access or disclosed peer review, where the peer review contents are publicized;
  • open-invitation or unsolicited peer review, where anyone interested can join and contribute to the peer review process. In this case does not follow that peer-review is a gate-keeping process.

Related terminology is "public peer review", "transparent peer review", and "advanced open peer review".
