Against The Grain, a US-based newsletter, has its special issue on peer review out now.

It includes an article by me, Current Peer Review Practice and Perceptions: The View from the Field. It’s not currently available online but I’ll be putting up a preprint version shortly.

Other articles include Peer Review: The History, the Issues, and New Directions by Irving Rockwood (who also edited the issue); PLoS ONE: New Approaches and Initiatives in the Evolution of the Academic Journal, by Peter Binfield; Interactive Open Access Peer Review: The Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics Model, by Ulrich Pöschl; The Open Scholarship Full Disclosure Initiative: A Subversive Proposal, by Gary Hall; and The Odd Case of Book Reviews, by David Shatz.
