Resource: Peer Review

Peer review provides important feedback on accuracy and quality, adding a diverse set of perspectives on the text.

While there are many people throughout the process who also contribute to the overall value and credibility of your open textbook, the peer reviewers provide feedback from a position that is less close to the creation process. This can be important for checking bias and helping identify questions or concerns that might otherwise go overlooked.

Our guide to the peer review process provides a number of recommendations for making this phase of the project as productive and successful as possible.
