Talk: What does peer review actually do? A living synthesis of studies on manuscript changes. 
Calls have been made to showcase changes that occurred to each study due to peer review. Until those calls are met, it is our aim to identify and synthesize findings of all studies that analysed differences between preprints or submitted manuscript versions and peer-reviewed publications. This living systematic review is ongoing, but data of 21 studies published till end of 2020 indicate very high similarity between version-pairs, with largest changes occurring in introduction or discussion sections of papers. If studies findings rarely change, journal publication and peer review may not be the best approach for science dissemination.
