2012 The Transformation of Peer Review
University presses have served as gatekeepers for academic quality, primarily through the review process. What happens as university presses—and what we sell—change? What about trade books or born-digital projects? Open Access peer review: What happens when the Press gives up some of its authority in the review process? How does this serve the academic community? What do authors want in terms of review? What makes for a good book?
Chair: Kendra Boileau, Editor-in-Chief, Penn State University Press
Panelists: Diane Harley, Principal Investigator for the Peer Review in Academic Promotion and Publishing study; Karen Hill, Interim Director, University of Michigan Press; Gita Manaktala, Editorial Director, MIT Press
