Global State of Peer Review

What does the peer review landscape look like today? Is it getting better or worse? And who’s actually doing all the peer review, anyway? We made it part of our Peer Review Week mission to find out.

The Global State of Peer Review report combines:

  • Rich and extensive data from ScholarOne Manuscripts and Web of Science
  • Analysis of exclusive cross-publisher peer review data
  • Survey responses from ~12,000 researchers around the globe
  • Statistics and insight to uncover the future direction of peer review.

This informs one of the largest peer review reports of its time, intended to lay the foundation for greater understanding, transparency, quality, trust, and efficiency in peer review. Download the report and survey results below.
