I’m starting to think about some of the talks I’ll be giving whilst on my travels later in the year. Questions relating to peer review inevitably crop up — about double-blind peer review, open peer review, or why the vast majority of journals don’t publish referee reports, and so on… Without boring you senseless with a long list of questions, below are three that sprang to mind earlier today. I realise this is hardly a controlled experiment and the sample size might not be huge — but I’m interested to see how the vote goes. I’ll leave the polls open for a little while and do a wrap-up post when I get the chance. If you have anything interesting to say about peer review — or any questions — then please comment!
A couple of notes:
1. These questions aren’t related to any impending change of policy at my day job — or indeed to how I do my day job. I’m just genuinely curious to see how the votes go.
2. If I never have to insert another poll into a WordPress post, it will be too soon. Talk about infuriating.
