Peer Review

Peer review of scientific manuscripts is essential for what is, currently, by far the most widely accepted means of communication of scientific results: publishing papers in scientific journals. The process of peer review plays an important role in refining the body of work prior to final publication.

We believe that transparency in peer review can improve the speed, quality, and collegiality of the publication process. Peer review is also an important training opportunity for lab members in scientific thinking and writing. As such, we only review manuscripts that have been posted on preprint servers and we post our peer review comments publicly. Additional resources can be found in our Lab Compact and in the Peer Review minicourse. We support other initiatives to improve peer review (such as Review Commons and FeedbackASAP).
