What Do You Think About the Future of Peer Review?

Debates on peer review and alternative approaches to the dissemination and evaluation of research and scholarship are not confined to the humanities. In mathematics and the natural sciences, Internet-based alternatives to traditional academic journals, such as the Public Library of Science (PLoS), MathOverflow or ResearchGate, are playing a growing role – and that role is the subject of active debate. Similar discussions are unfolding in the social sciences.

Clarion welcomes letters or proposals for op-eds on the future of peer review and publication in the digital age. Letters (see page 2) should be 200 words or less; for op-ed proposals contact the editor, Peter Hogness.
