Concurrent 3A: Open Access: Peer Review: Single Blind, Double Blind, Open, and Pre-Submission

Peer Review means many different things to different people. Some journals prefer single blind while others prefer double blind. Still other journals have moved to open peer review and may even publish the reviews online as part of the article. In recent years new services have cropped up to provide peer review for authors before they have even submitted the article to a journal. Join us to discuss a variety of peer review workflows, terms, and options.
Moderator: Mary Anne Baynes, Cenveo Publisher Services
