Open Peer Review (OPR) Science is an open access post publication peer review and knowledge exchange platform for researchers in the fields of Medicine, Healthcare and Life Sciences, with immediate publication of articles and transparent peer review, without editorial bias.
Why Open Peer Review (OPR) Science?
- Immediate Publication: The traditional double blind pre-publication peer review of research articles can cause long delays and remains unpublished at times, wasting the researchers’ time and funding. We publish all scientific research within few days of submission, upon internal review. Open, invited peer review of articles is conducted after publication, focusing on scientific correctness.
“The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress”– Joseph Joubert
- Transparency: Publishing reviewer comments and author responses alongside, removes the ambiguity that can bias the way scientists critique each others’ work. We facilitate authors to publish revised versions of their articles at no extra cost.
“I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work”-Thomas Alva Edison
- Share Everything: We encourage researchers to publish all findings, including observation articles, null/negative results, etc which could favor Science.
