Supporting the Future of Peer Review – Episode 87 – The Oxford Comment

September 19, 2023

On today’s episode, we’re joined by three OUP colleagues to discuss current changes in academic publishing and what they will mean for the future of peer review.  First, we talk with Laura Jose, a Publisher in the Owned and Product Tower at OUP, about bias reduction in peer review. Next, we speak with Dr. Amanda Boehm, scientific managing editor for JNCI: Journal of the National Cancer Institute and JNCI Cancer Spectrum, about how diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility initiatives affect peer review. Lastly, we ask James Phillpotts, the Director of Content Transformation & Standards who serves as an OUP representative for the National Information Standards Organization, about the impact of NISO’s recently released document on the standard terminology for peer review.
