The validity and trustworthiness of peer review is vital to scientific publishing.  Peer review fraud is on the rise and threatening the integrity of the scientific process and the public’s trust in scientific knowledge.  The round table discussion will explore what this means for the future of peer review and what the scientific community can do to combat it.
In this session, a panel of publishers, editors, academics, and technological innovators, including Retraction Watch founder Ivan Oransky, Jigisha Patel, Associate Editorial Director for research integrity at BioMed Central, and Amos Korczyn, Professor of neurology and pharmacology at Tel Avivi University, will address the landscape of peer review fraud, its impact, and potential solutions.
