ANSI/NISO Z39.106-2023, Standard Terminology for Peer Review


This document identifies and standardizes definitions and terminology in peer review practices in order to help align nomenclature as more publishers use open peer review models. A peer review terminology that is used across publishers will help make the peer review process for articles and journals more transparent, and will enable the community to better assess and compare peer review practices between different journals.
