American Institute of Biological Sciences (AIBS) Council of Member Societies and Organizations 2016 Meeting

AIBS hosted a meeting Titled “The Role of Peer Review in Informed Decision-making.”  The meeting tackled questions:

  • Do we know what we need to know about peer review?
  • Does peer review meet the needs of the modern publication system?
  • How effectively does peer review identify the best research proposals?
  • Is peer review properly incentivized and are reviewers being asked to evaluate the right things?

Betsy Myers from Doris Duke Charitable Foundation was a panelist at this meeting.  You can read her piece called “Foundations and Peer Review: Time to Reconsider the Process?” as well as download the full report from the meeting, “Peer Review: A System Under Stress“, for more information.

Similar to the ASAPBio meeting, participants called for acknowledging and incentivizing peer review activity.  In addition, there was a call for more data to inform best practices – which should result from the HHMI-CZI-supported experiments.  Stay tuned.
