The rigour of rapid peer review- Interview with Dr. Cooke

Dr. Cooke interviewed by Chronicle of Higher Education about Zika virus and the rigour of rapid peer review.


“Quicker also doesn’t mean “easier” peer review, said Steven J. Cooke, a professor of environmental science and biology at Carleton University who has studied journals’ efforts to speed their publication processes. Instead, editors seeking outside reviewers work even more aggressively to find them, sending multiple emails and following them with phone calls, or using their own editorial teams, Mr. Cooke said.

“There are ways to move really key pieces forward with more speed, while maintaining the same rigor,” he said.”
