Editorial Peer Review: Its Strengths and Weaknesses
By Ann C. Weller
This important book is the first to provide an in-depth
analysis of the peer review process in scholarly publishing.
Author Weller (Associate Professor and
Deputy Director at the Library of the Health Sciences, University of Illinois
at Chicago) offers a carefully researched, systematic review of published studies
of editorial peer review in the following broad categories: general studies
of rejection rates, studies of editors, studies of authors,
and studies of reviewers.
The book concludes with an examination of new models of editorial peer review
intended to enhance the scientific communication process as it moves from a
print to an electronic environment. Editorial
Peer Review is an essential monograph for editors, reviewers, publishers,
professionals from learned societies, writers, scholars, and librarians who
purchase and disseminate scholarly material.
