Sample text

Around 90 per cent of the respondents in both surveys felt that their own last accepted paper had been improved by peer review – an important element that is often overlooked. That is not to say that peer review is perfect – it isn’t. Even though the two surveys found much support for peer review, there was a degree of dissatisfaction (12 and 9 per cent, respectively). Also, around a third in each survey did not agree that the current peer-review system is the best that can be achieved. The shortcomings of peer review have been highlighted (Wager and Jefferson, 2001) and criticisms levelled on a number of fronts (Smith, 2006, 2010a): about its quality and fairness, that it is open to abuse and bias, that it is expensive, slow and lacks consistency, and that it is conservative.

One of the reasons some journals may be finding it harder to find reviewers is that there is currently an imbalance between where submissions are coming from and who is doing the reviewing. For example, the USA is producing about 20 per cent of papers globally but conducting about 32 per cent of the reviews, whereas China is producing about 12–15 per cent of the papers but probably doing only 4–5 per cent of the reviewing (Elsevier, 2011a). This is believed to be a temporary, transitionary situation, and likely to become better balanced as young researchers in the newly emerging scientific nations become more established and experienced in peer reviewing.

At the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, the great majority of journals, especially in STM (Scientific, Technical and Medical) areas, have web-based online submission and review. Part of this rapid adoption has been due to the large investment by publishers in the implementation of online systems and in the provision of training and support to editors and editorial offices. The importance of training cannot be overestimated, both for the technological aspects and for induction into good and ethical practice.
