New online platform PREP

Last modified: March 18, 2020

PREP is an online platform contributing to the responsible organization of editorial procedures by scholarly journals. It facilitates journal editors to become transparent about their editorial procedures, advises journal editors and publishers on potential improvements of their peer review procedures, and presents integrated information about the variety of review procedures currently in use. The platform also maintains a database of journals’ current peer review formats and provides information and tools for journals to use journal metrics in a responsible way.

This means PREP can be useful for STS/metascience researchers by providing data about journals and peer review, either for research purposes or for education. Or join as an editor by sharing how your journal is organized, or by signing our transparency declaration. Visit their site for more info!

PREP was funded by the ZonMW programme Bevorderen Verantwoorde Onderzoekspraktijken.
