Disruptive Conversations Series: Peer Review Under Pressure

18 april 2023 12:45 t/m 13:45 - Locatie: TU Delft X, The Mind & Body room and online | Zet in mijn agenda

How do we ensure research publications are of high quality?

Would you like to know more about [open] peer review and associated challenges? Do you want to contribute to the conversation and improve the existing practices of peer review? Join this panel discussion to find out more.

Originally designed as a way to provide “quality checks” in research, the practice of peer review has recently been a controversial subject of discussions. Researchers have raised questions such as whether peer review truly works to guarantee the quality of scientific work or merely provides a false stamp of approval, why peer reviewers do not review the data where mistakes are most commonly made, and whether peer review hinders scientific progress. In this panel discussion, we will examine the current state of the academic publishing system and several problems associated with the practice of peer review. We will also explore potential new ways to reinvent the quality control system of the 21st century that will best serve the needs of the scientific community.
