2015 Closing Plenary
Peer Review—Past, Present, & Future
Saturday, June 18, 1:45–3:00 PM
Moderator: Peter Berkery, Executive Director, AAUP
Panelists: Aileen Fyfe, University of St. Andrews; Brian Halley, Senior Editor, University of Massachusetts Press; John Inglis, Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories Press
Peer review is the hallmark of university press publishing; indeed, AAUP has spent the past two years developing Best Practices for Peer Review precisely because of its centrality to our mission. But do you know peer review as well as you think you do? In this informative and provocative closing session, a diverse panel of scholars and publishers will present a range of perspectives on peer review—how it’s done, why it’s done, where it’s headed. Prepare to have your pre-conceived notions challenged!
