In concurrence with Peer Review Week 2020, Stephanie Dawson and Ian Caswell of UCL Press will host a virtual event on September 24, 2020, through Zoom describing the Open Peer Review tools behind UCL Open: Environment. The event will have the form of a case study, and Ian and Stephanie will explain the editorial workflow of UCL Open in addition to sharing their experience in implementing open publishing models on ScienceOpen. Publishers, editors, or open science enthusiasts can get unique insight into the practical aspects of open publishing.

The full transparency of the UCL Open: Environment Open Peer Review model helps promote trust in the peer review process, which coincides well with the Peer Review Week 2020 theme: Trust in Peer Review. UCL Open: Environment claims to be the only completely open publishing models in practice.
In addition to the open format of UCL Open: Environment, Stephanie will also generally introduce ScienceOpen and go over the peer review interface provided by ScienceOpen, which enables post-publication reviewing of all articles on the platform to qualified ScienceOpen members. Each review becomes attached to the reviewed piece of research and the reviewers get credit for their efforts. This process enables researchers to share their expertise within the context of the nearly 65 million records on ScienceOpen, building up their research profile.
Another Peer Review Week event ScienceOpen, on the topic ‘Rapid and Open Peer Review: What are the new technologies for research quality assessment in academic publishing’, was conducted on September 21, 2020.
