Taylor & Francis Throws Its Weight Behind DOAB's PRISM Peer-Review Initiative
Taylor & Francis is one of the first large publishers that has signed on to support “an initiative to boost researcher confidence in open access (OA) books and promote better understanding of the role of peer review. Peer Review Information Service for Monographs (PRISM) provides a standardized way for publishers to present information about the peer review processes for their titles on the Directory of Open Access Books (DOAB) platform.”
The press release continues, “All Taylor & Francis OA books, including those published under the Routledge and CRC Press imprints, are peer reviewed by experts. PRISM makes information about the peer review process easily available to DOAB users, including details about when the review took place (such as at proposal stage) and the type of peer reviewer (for example, by an external reviewer).”
