Open letter on the publication of peer review reports
journals are committing to offer publication of reviewer reports alongside articles to better serve authors, reviewers and readers. Thrilled to be making this pledge alongside so many other journals (

We invite editors to sign an open letter (
) supporting a move to publish peer review reports.
A list of 124 (and counting) journals that are or will publish peer reviews. I will be prioritizing these journals for our papers. Publishing reviews is better for science, the review process, training, and public perception. Thanks #ASAPbio and editors!
We’ll be publishing (anonymous) peer review reports - as soon as we can sort out logistics We’re signatories of the
letter encouraging others to follow

I fully support the #PublishPeerReview initiative
For me, the example to follow is from
: reviewing history + editorial decision (1 example here --->

There’s always been talk amongst us publishers that making peer review reports open is only a good thing; transparency, more context & upholds journal standards. That’s why this open letter is important as the unified approach will catalyse a real change
It's heartening to see some journals committing to a more transparent #peerreview process
. But we need more journals to commit to improving #peerreview, and to the research community as a whole taking effective measures to making it fairer for all
