Peer review of journals has been evolving ever since it was first introduced in the seventeenth century. Today there are a multitude of peer review processes, many different flavors of review, and a wealth of new tools and services for editors and reviewers. We asked experts from three very different organizations, each with a strong commitment to peer review, to give us their thoughts on how it’s evolved in their organizations and the communities they serve, how it works today, and what it might look like in future.

An interesting reflection on the history of peer review and where it might (perhaps should) be headed.

Rachel Burley is Publishing Director of BioMed Central (BMC), an early and highly successful adopter of open access journals with a strong tradition of experimentation in its publishing program. Seth Denbo is Director of Scholarly Communication and Digital Initiatives at the American Historical Association, the largest professional organization serving historians. Phil Hurst and Stuart Taylor are, respectively Publisher and Publishing Director at The Royal Society, the world’s oldest learned society and publisher of the world’s first scholarly journal, Philosophical Transactions, which celebrated its 350th birthday in 2015.
