Re: [jox] Peer process (was: Re: Size of Merten / Meretz text)

Hi Stefan, all

Well, there _is_ a summary of the process:

My interrogation was because the following... 

"Once authors have completed a full submission, they submit it to the editor who will assign it to three reviewers. Reviewers are encouraged to communicate with one another. Reviewers will provide any necessary recommendations for improvement. Once the paper is completed, reviewers will signal what they think of the final paper by using the following categories, etc"

... is a little vague in terms of the relationship between authors and reviewer recommendation, i.e. do authors have to follow the recommendations or can they choose to ignore them and (presumably) get a worse rating after? I guess that is up to the authors really. I have not heard from the reviewed authors yet.

Hi Mathieu!

get the peer process going.

Well, my main problem is that it is not written down somewhere 
in a
concise form. Graham noted that he has the same problem. I think we
had a consensus on how to proceed so this is what is missing.

You said that you like to keep this stuff in the mailing list archive.
Well, to me it looks like this policy is one of the big 
obstacles at
the moment. I'd like to recommend that you change your mind on this.
