Trends in Peer Review of Open Access Preprints

Wednesday, October 26, 2022 at 11:00am to 12:00pm

Mann Library, 160
Cornell University Mann Library, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY 14853, USA

Speed of research is a major feature of open access preprint platforms like arXiv. Formal peer review can follow later after the rapid distribution of results. However, as submissions to arXiv and other preprint servers have grown, many researchers are seeking new avenues for community feedback and peer review. At this panel discussion, leaders in preprints and peer review will discuss current trends in virtual overlay journals, open peer reviews, and more.

  • Peter Coles, PhD, Theoretical Cosmologist at Maynooth University in Ireland and Managing Editor of The Open Journal of Astrophysics
  • Jessica Polka, PhD, Executive Director of ASAPbio
  • Antti Mikael Rousi, PhD, Senior Advisor, Research Services at Aalto University, Finland
  • Steinn Sigurdsson, PhD, Professor of Astronomy at Penn State University and arXiv Scientific Director

Hosted by Alison Fromme of arXiv. Attend in person and receive a pair of Open Access socks!
