Peer Review Week:

Creating and Supporting Trust in Research Through Peer Review

By IGI Global on Sep 21, 2022
Peer Review Week Logo.

Across the scholarly publishing industry, research and academic integrity are vital to the trust and validity of research. The peer review process is the core of reputable scholarly publishing, and while the publishing landscape is continually growing, our best practices to publish high-quality research continue to include a peer-review process that encompasses global expert perspectives, and the elimination of fraud, which erodes public trust in the sciences and affects the outcomes of all research results and findings reported within scholarly publications.

This year, we are once again showing our support for Peer Review Week, which runs from September 19-23, 2022. All of IGI Global's publications undergo a rigorous double-blind academic peer review process, conducted within the IGI Global eEditorial Discovery® (EED)® online submission system. Through this system, reviews are easily accessible to the IGI Global editorial staff, ensuring that any concerns around the quality of the publication are quickly and seriously addressed.

Included among IGI Global's Library & Information Science and Education core subject areas are a selection of titles on scholarly publishing, including research on ethics within the industry from experts in the field. These topics range from technological advancements and applications of blockchain on improving the peer-review process and electronic plagiarism detection, and more.

“My overarching goal as a participant in the scholarly publishing process is to help improve the quality and pace of scholarly research. It is my hope that Transforming Scholarly Publishing With Blockchain Technologies and AI will encourage our industry leaders to challenge themselves and their organizations to invest the time and resources to determine how these new technologies can be utilized. . . Blockchain and its distributed ledger system will bring transparency, clarity and trust to our marketplace.”
--Prof. Darrell Wayne Gunter, Gunter Media Group, USA

Other experts emphasize the importance of academic policing, cyber cheating, and ethical behavior within higher education to encourage ethical behavior within academia.

“As actions that are considered dishonest broadens, so must the strategies to address them. Local, national and international communities cannot and will not be globally competitive if they raise a generation of under-educated cheaters. This is especially pertinent in relation to courses/programs that lead to professional status.”
--Dr. Donna Velliaris, Independent Scholar, Japan

These titles are available in print and electronic format and are featured in the IGI Global Education Knowledge Solutions e-Book Collection.

There is a growing issue in the research community of authors submitting their articles to gold OA journals (and even hybrid OA/subscription-based journals), and then withdrawing their article after it has been accepted to the journal, effectively utilizing all of the resources of that journal, including the peer review, only to then refuse to publish at the end of the process.
