|Peer review policy||http://www.oapen.org/peerreview?page=intro
OAPEN screens publishers who wish to join the library and provide Open Access publications to the collection. OAPEN requires publishers to describe their peer review procedures and make these descriptions available for publication on the OAPEN website. The aim of transparency in peer review procedures is to ensure and promote academic standards. Reviewing should be conducted by independent peers and/or editorial boards, and editors (including series editors) should not act as reviewers.
