New Organization Plans to Use Independent Peer Review to Put Millions of Hours Back into Research
Date:12/12/2012

DURHAM, N.C., Dec. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- A new for-benefit organization named Rubriq has been formed to address the challenges of the peer review system for scientific publishing, and to recover lost hours from redundant reviews so they can be put back into research. In the current journal submission process, rejection is common, yet reviews are rarely passed along from one journal to the next. This leads to reviewers repeating work that has already been done on the same manuscript by other colleagues. Using data from published studies and reports, the Rubriq team estimates that over 15 million hours of time are spent on redundant or unnecessary reviews – every year.

To address this issue, the Rubriq team has been testing a standardized peer review instrument that can be used for any paper that follows the traditional scientific method.  This patent-pending scorecard process will be used for double-blinded peer review by three academic reviewers. Detailed reviewer comments will be accompanied by numerical ratings for each of the sections that can be used to quickly sort papers by quality and impact, and will also produce an overall score (R-Score). The scoring system will be aligned with journal acceptance rates and other key factors, which will allow the Rubriq system to suggest best matches between journals and papers.

For authors, the Rubriq independent peer review system will offer the advantage of a fast (in about a week) pre-submission peer review from three experts in their field, as well as recommendations for the best journal match for their manuscripts. Reviewers will receive compensation for their expedited reviews and will benefit from the efficiency of a standardized scorecard. Journals will have free access to reviews and scores, and can use the data to pre-screen papers t
