ACRL Presents: Opening Peer Review in LIS
What does it mean to peer review in library and information science? What does it mean to be reviewed? How do our professional identities intersect with this vital research and publishing role? And what does it mean when peer review is opened to reveal these identities? In celebration of Peer Review Week 2021, this free webcast with Emily Ford will share insights into peer review in LIS as discussed in Stories of Open: Opening Peer Review through Narrative Inquiry, a newly published book from ACRL.

Presenter bio: Emily Ford loves stories. She is curious to understand the human experience, and how we can connect in community through individual and collective experiences. Although her research is focused on opening scholarly peer review, she views the peer-review system as one composed of human experience stories. As one of the co-founders of In the Library with the Lead Pipe, she became immersed in peer review and publishing early in her career. She currently serves as Urban & Public Affairs Librarian at Portland State University, where she is also on the Library’s scholarly communication team. When not immersed in stories, she is most likely found trail running, practicing yoga, puttering in her yard, or petting her cats and her pet rats.
