Summary of webinar

To address problems with the peer-review process, many journals have experimented with different types of peer-review models. Open peer review was adopted by several journals in order to encourage transparency in the process, and there are now a number of different ways in which this is implemented. This webinar will provide an overview of the different peer review processes which exist, and will demonstrate how the post-publication open-peer review model is implemented on articles published in F1000Research and associated platforms.

Sabina Alam is the Editorial Director of F1000 Platforms.  After completing a PhD in neuroimmunology from the University of Bath, and then a postdoctoral position in neuroscience at the School of Pharmacy in London, Sabina moved from research into scientific open access publishing in 2008.  After a few years as a staff editor handling the peer review process on a number of BMC series journals, she became the Chief Editor of the open-peer reviewed journal, BMC Medicine from 2011-2016. Sabina has been involved in various peer review initiatives, and is a member of COPE and the World Association of Medical Editors (WAME).  Sabina joined F1000 Platforms in 2017 as Editorial Director where she oversees the editorial and publishing service for all submissions to the F1000 platforms, which all operate on a post-publication invited open-peer review model.
