“Peer Review. It’s Broken, Of Course, but Was It Ever Whole?”

This presentation shall discuss the history of peer review applied to manuscripts, as well as alternatives and, over the past 25 years, the research effort to understand and improve it.


Attendees will learn:

  1. How journal peer review developed. 

  2. How journal peer review works, and why it works. 

  3. Why it can never guarantee anything. 

  4. How its workings are almost universally misunderstood by the media.
