shadowclaw Posted September 26, 2015 Share Posted September 26, 2015 Has anyone tried Peerage of Science and had success with it? POS is touted as a new way to do peer review (you can check out the website at http://www.peerageofscience.org). Basically, it's supposed to shorten the time your paper spends in review and help prevent those cruddy reviews where it seems like your reviewer didn't even read the paper. The basic process is that you first submit your manuscript and set deadlines for when you'd like it reviewed by, when you'd like peer review of your peer review done, and how long you'll have to make revisions. Next, your paper gets reviewed by two people using a specific format that is supposed to help show you what parts of your paper need most revision. After the review stage, the review actually gets reviewed. So if your reviewer did a lousy job, they will get called out on it by another reviewer. Finally, you use your reviews to make revisions. At this point, you can submit the whole history of the manuscript and peer review to participating journals (which may or may not require further peer review). Participating journals also have the option of viewing your manuscript anytime during the process and can make publishing offers to you.It sounded like a good idea when one of my committee members from my masters program suggested we use it. However, our paper only got one review (and the review is currently under review), and it wasn't very good... not that the reviewer didn't try to do a good job, but they really didn't understand how the stats worked and that's what most of their comments were on.Anyone else try this and have a good experience?
