Peer Review 4: Peer Review Under Pressure

Peer Review 4: Peer Review Under Pressure
27 May 2021, 2.00pm - 3.15pm

This panel will discuss whether systems of peer review in the humanities are facing unsustainable pressures, which have only been heightened by new ways of working during the COVID-19 pandemic. What are the incentives to participate in peer review (both pre- and post-publication)? On whom is the burden of peer review (disproportionately) falling? Is peer review enabling innovation or proving more effective at preserving the status quo? Is the sheer volume of publications and research grants part of the problem? The panel will consider how we might not just improve peer review, but begin to reimagine it.

Panellists: Diamond Ashiagbor (Kent), Charles Burdett (IMLR), Tao Chang (AHRC) and Pip Willcox (The National Archives)
Chair: Jo Fox (SAS)
