Open peer review has been growing steadily but its implementations take many different forms. Alison Mudditt and Véronique Kiermer take a deep dive into the question of whether reviewers should be openly identified.
Véronique Kiermer is the Chief Scientific Officer at PLOS where she oversees the editorial department and the development of services, products, and policies to promote open science. Before joining PLOS in 2015, she held various editorial roles with the Nature journals, and worked in R&D in the biotechnology industry. She currently serves on the Board of Directors of Keystone Symposia, ORCID and on the Steering Committee of PREreview.
