Research integrity and peer review are fundamental to the practice of good science; however, traditionally it has been hard to find a suitable place to publish studies that advance our understanding of this. Therefore, BioMed Central is delighted to announce the launch of a new Open Access journal, Research Integrity and Peer Review.
Research Integrity and Peer Review is an international, peer reviewed journal that encompasses all aspects of integrity in research publication, including peer review, study reporting, and research and publication ethics. Particular consideration is given to submissions that address current controversies and limitations in the field and offer potential solutions.
The journal has four Editors-in-Chief; each co-Editor-in-Chief will head up their own section covering the following topics: Peer Review (edited by Liz Wager); Research Reporting (edited by Iveta Simera) and Research and Publication Ethics (edited by Stephanie Harriman and Maria Kowalczuk). The journal will operate under the open peer review model whereby all of the peer review reports will be published alongside the final article with each reviewer named.
The journal is now open for submissions. If you have any questions, or would like to get involved with the journal, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
