RE (Peer Review Evaluation) was formed to assist members of the scholarly publishing community who are committed to preserving an ethical, rigorous peer review process.
Researchers and others have more information than ever to sort through, but less time to do it. The peer review process is increasingly under fire. Questions about trust abound. How do users determine what content to select?
Before an article is published, the usual assumption is that it has passed through a quality peer-review process. As a practical matter however, some journals claim to be peer-reviewed when in fact they are not, or their review process is weak.
We offer tools and services that help to validate what level of peer review was conducted prior to the publication of scholarly works. PRE-val and related services, such as PRE-score, will let users know that material has been carefully vetted and what review steps have been completed. The goal of PRE is to help recognize those who work hard at quality peer review, to increase the level of trust and transparency around the process, and to help readers locate high-value science.
