Spontaneous Peer Review


Here’s an example of how digital platforms for scholarship upend the traditional, slow, linear trajectories of academic print publication. Our website Mina Loy: Navigating the Avant-Garde has received a wonderful, online review on MLACommons before we’ve officially gone public or been peer-reviewed. Since this review, we’ve restructured the website, redesigning the user interface and adding more student work and interactive features. Although we plan to use Hypothes.is for public peer review and work with Mod-Nets to make sure we meet their standards, it’s exciting to see peer review happening spontaneously on our work-in-process.
