eLife Expounds on Its New Preprint Review and Assessment Policy

eLife shares that its “new publishing model has sparked vigorous discussion about the role of editors in selecting research articles for publication. In October, the organisation announced that it is eliminating accept/reject decisions after peer review and instead focusing on preprint review and assessment.” Nine supporters have committed to using reviewed preprints in the evaluation process, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and Wellcome.

eLife asserts, “The current science publishing system relies on a model of peer review that focuses on directing papers into journals. These reviews are not made publicly available, stripping them of their potential value to wider readers and leading committees to judge scientists based on where, rather than what, they publish. This can impact hiring, funding and promotion decisions, and highlights the need for a system of review that helps funding and research organisations assess scientists based on the research itself and related peer reviews.”
