Innovative Peer Review for Research Libraries – Workshop at Open Science Fair
This workshop on Innovative Peer Review for Research Libraries takes place on the 22nd of September at 09:30 – 11:00 CEST (during the Open Science Fair)
Participants are expected to get acquainted with the peer-review process behind the ORE platform as well as learn more about open peer review and actively join in the discussion around the best practices and challenges of innovative peer review.
This workshop will be co-organised by LIBER and Open Research Europe (ORE). Open Research Europe is an open access publication platform for the publication of research resulting from Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe funding in all subject areas. The workshop will explain the peer review model behind the platform which is fully open and transparent as well as invite expert speakers to talk about innovative peer review.
Recently, increasing attention has been paid to ways of streamlining the peer review process and applying alternative peer review methods using new technologies and open access models. There are several developments that the world of scientific communication is currently facing in relation to these new processes and methods such as finding a balance between speeding up the process without compromising quality, integration with research evaluation and understanding the role of citizens and machines in peer review. The new developments in the field of Innovative Peer Review can lead to great opportunities for research libraries, especially in the areas of service development, engagement, and training. During the workshop best practices will be shared about new open peer review approaches, with the opportunity to discuss these new developments in a group discussion. The workshop is addressed at research librarians and researchers with and without experience with the ORE platform with an interest in open and innovative peer review. Specifically, research libraries professionals in publishing and editorial units, or managers of advanced repositories and library staff who work on Open Science software, or who are responsible for promoting Open Science in their institutions are invited to join.
