The STScI Chief Librarian, Jenny Novacescu, has complied a few articles on double-blind peer reviews that should be useful in our discussions. They are available on https://stsci.box.com/s/ls9n3etdbcnwbukmdq3nclpzrlf7kx85
. Before diving into these articles, a place to start might be this article in Science Magazine. A question I had in reading this is if we had an optional anonymous submission option, as a compromise, would anyone use it?
In the document “Anonymous-Double Blind Review Annotated Bibliography.docx” Jenny has thankfully provided some crib notes on each of the articles in the document Anonymous-Double Blind Review Annotated Bibliography [.docx.].
