Peer review or perish

A couple of years ago, Andrew wrote an interesting piece on peer review, which you can find here Published yesterday in the Times Higher is a piece in which 6 academics (mostly full professors, I note) quote the worst peer reviews they ever got, and give their opinion on whether peer review should be jettisoned. The reviewer comment “What is this muck?” is one of the most arresting (in response to a paper by Prof Susan Bassnett). The last contributor chooses to remain anonymous, but is calling for examples of bad peer review to put on a website...
Times Higher Education. (2015, 6 August). The worst piece of peer review I’ve ever received. Times Higher Education.
