ACS Pilots Transparent Peer Review for Two Journals

The Publications Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) introduced transparent peer review, a peer review process implemented as a pilot for ACS Central Science and The Journal of Physical Chemistry Letters. ACS notes, “For authors and reviewers who choose to participate, transparent peer review makes the reviewers’ comments and the authors’ response to the reviewers visible to readers of a published article. … For a manuscript to undergo the new process, all authors and reviewers must opt into transparent peer review. If all parties agree, their reports and responses will be published alongside an article as Supporting Information.”

“This new approach provides insight into an essential part of the publication process that has been typically kept private,” says Sarah Tegen, SVP of the Journals Publishing Group at ACS. “Transparent peer review promotes open science by providing access to the exchange between reviewers and authors. It serves another function in helping to educate early career researchers who are just beginning to review or publish research articles. Seeing real examples of other researchers’ reviews and comments can be an invaluable tool for these young scientists.”
