Reforming the peer review process

“The peer-review process is fallible, slow, and biased, and it takes advantage of the scientific community’s altruism. We need to keep pushing the conversation forward about making publishing more equitable, timely, accessible, and fair. An obvious and easy way to begin is to pay the experts who perform the peer reviews. Either the journals need to reform their practices, or the medical community should establish an alternative.”

Andrew Spector is a neurologist.

He shares his story and discusses his KevinMD article, “Fairness in medical publishing: Reforming the peer review process.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2020/11/fairness-in-medical-publishing-reforming-the-peer-review-process.html)
