Abstract

Peer Review: Reform and Renewal in Scientific Publishing offers a useful overview of the processes of peer review in scholarly journal publication. The book is engaging and accessible. Peer Review provides helpful descriptions of different varieties of peer review, such as single blind, double blind, and open review, and describes challenges the practice faces. Peer Review misses its mark when it begins to suggest improvements for the peer review process. No automation or reviewer training will guarantee validity in publication.

Keywords: scholarly communication, peer review, academic publishing, refereeing, book review
