Academic publishing SAGE Publishing is now offering open reviewer reports via the Web of Science™ transparent peer review service. The program enables transparent publication of an article’s complete peer review process, from initial review and response through to revision and final publication decision.
SAGE is offering the program on four journals: Therapeutic Advances in Respiratory Disease; Advances in Methods and Practices in Psychological Science; Clinical Medicine Insights: Pediatrics; and Neuroscience Insights.
The process will be facilitated via SAGE’s online submission and review system, SAGE Track, powered by ScholarOne™, making it simple for authors, editors, or reviewers to opt in or out.
All eligible published articles will be accompanied by a link to the full peer review history, including reviewer reports at each stage, author responses and editor’s decision letters. Each element will be assigned its own Digital Object Identifier (DOI), ensuring that review materials are fully citable and attributable.
Reviewers will be offered the choice of whether to have their name published alongside their review. Those who opt in will receive recognition on their Clarivate author profile.
