Peer Review Taxonomy

Epidemiology & Infection and Cambridge University Press are participating in a pilot of STM's Working Group on Peer Review Taxonomy.

Background statement: "STM, the International Association of Scientific, Technical and Medical Publishers, has recognised a need to identify and standardise definitions and terminology in peer review practices in order to help align nomenclature as more publishers use open peer review models. A peer review taxonomy that is used across publishers will help make the peer review process for articles and journals more transparent, and will enable the community to better assess and compare peer review practices between different journals."

Taxonomy:

  • Identity transparency: Single anonymized
  • Reviewer interacts with: Editor
  • Review information published: None

We would welcome your feedback on the Peer Review Taxonomy Pilot - please can you take the time to fill this short survey.
