Play • 59 sec

Hi, this is Lou Peck from The International Bunch and I’m going to talk to you about the six most common types of peer review in under 60 seconds.

  1. Single-blind peer review – reviewers know who the authors are, but the authors do not know who the reviewers are
  2. Double-blind peer review – authors and reviewers remain anonymous to each other
  3. Open/transparent peer review – authors and reviewers are aware of who each other are
  4. Post-publication peer review – peer review happens after the work is published – e.g. preprints, papers on F1000
  5. Collaborative peer review – peer reviewers can view each other's interactions and produce a final report
  6. Interactive peer review – peer reviewers interact with authors providing real-time feedback and collaborate with fellow peer reviewers. Once the final version is agreed, it is published!
