Nobel Laureate: Peer review is “completely corrupt”

Posted in Uncategorized

In the King’s Review, Nobel Prize-winning geneticist Sydney Brenner has a devastating perspective on the peer review system:

“I think peer review is hindering science. In fact, I think it has become a completely corrupt system. It’s corrupt in many ways, in that scientists and academics have handed over to the editors of these journals the ability to make judgment on science and scientists. There are universities in America, and I’ve heard from many committees, that we won’t consider people’s publications in low impact factor journals.”
