The Eighth International Congress on Peer Review and Scientific Publication took place Sept. 10-12, 2017 in Chicago. Journal editors, peer reviewers, publishers, researchers and publication professionals gathered to explore the quality and credibility of peer review, with the aim to find ways to improve the reporting and dissemination of scientific research.
