Peer review is a key element in any researcher’s career. The final result of a review can be highly influenced by many external factors such as concerns, incentives and/or institutional contexts. That is why, the COST network  New Frontiers on Peer Review (PEERE)  is carrying out a qualitative and quantitative analysis on this practice in different scientific fields and is also evaluating what the implications of different peer review models are.

In the frame of this research, the COST network has participated in  Symposium 3 ‘Predatory journals: Transparency and accountability – who should take action ?’ during the  5 th  World Conference on Research Integrity . Jadranka Stojanovski, from the University of Zadar (Croatia) and PEERE network member, gave a talk on the challenges behind scientific  journal publications: ‘Many shades of journal publishing: what colour is peer review in a predatory journal?’

Robert-Jan Smits, Director-General of the European Commission’s DG Research and Innovation, Director-General, was one of the  key-note speakers  at the Conference.
