Moving to triple-anonymous review!
July 8, 2011 § 4 Comments
I’m secretary to the Analysis Trust, and would like to report that the committee members and editors recently revised the paper reviewing processes at Analysis. The new policy is as described on the website:
“We practise triple anonymity: the Editor receives the submissions in anonymous form, as do referees, and authors are not informed of the identity of referees.
A proportion of papers are sent on to referees, and all accepted papers will have been refereed.”
Given what we know about bias in the review process, I’m sure you’ll agree that this is a commendable step. I hope this encourages more women to submit papers to the journal!
