I'm very excited to announce that the "final draft" of the white paper, Open Review: A Study of Contexts and Practices, which Kathleen Fitzpatrick and I wrote based on a series of workshops funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation on developing protocols for open peer review is now available for download here.
We are extremely grateful to Mellon for supporting this project as well as for the contributions of our grant team members, Michael Stoller (NYU Libraries),Monica McCormick (NYU Libraries and NYU Press) and Eric Zinner (NYU Press) and our advisory group: Cheryl Ball (Illinois State University), Dan Cohen (George Mason University), Cathy Davidson (Duke University), Lisa Gitelman (New York University), Nicholas Mirzoeff (New York University) and Sidonie Smith (University of Michigan), who brilliant thoughts Kathleen and I have incorporated into this document. We also want to thank Peter Brantley and Dan Visel, who wrote the appendices. Finally, we were incredibly appreciative of the feedback we received from participants in the open review of Open Review, which took place in MediaCommons Press this past summer. Your comments were invaluable and we strove to address them in our latest revision.
I am using scare quotes in describing this document as the final draft because we very much envision this white paper as a living document. We have once again placed this latest iteration in MediaCommons Press in the hopes of engaging conversations that extend and complicate our assertions.
