Group 3: Environmental Scan of Peer Review Tools, Processes & Research


  • administrators

    Goal: Review & summarize existing approaches to review, and tools used.

    This group will conduct a scan of the existing peer review market in order to inform the development of the Rebus processes.

    This may include:

    • Summarising current research in the area
    • Reviewing existing tools and resources used by other open textbook/OER publishers
    • Looking to open review processes in academic journals and monographs for inspiration

    If you would like to be a part of this group, please comment below with a bit about yourself, any specific interests on the subject and any initial thoughts on the group’s purpose.

    comment below with a bit about yourself, any specific interests on the subject and any initial thoughts on the group’s purpose.

    My name is Nicholas and I am a PhD student at UCI (California) in Informatics. Primarily, I conduct research on gamification and learning theory. However, I do a fair bit of design and development on the web and in game engines.

    I am curious about the culture of use surrounding open textbooks and peer review tools and resources. For example, in what ways do the tools/resources help the community grow and improve making OT/PR? Are certain practices hindering the growth or value seen in OT/PR? How can tools/resources be shaped to solidify and enhance the community of practice?

    Perhaps after others have chimed in, we can reach a consensus about initial plans and purposes.



  • I currently hold the position of OER coordinator at PSU. We are beginning to expand our OER initiative and peer review will be incorporated into our open publishing model.
