Addressing the shortage of peer-reviewers: Opinion

Colleen Flaherty of Inside Higher Education reports that journals are currently facing a shortage of peer-reviewers. After the disruption created by the pandemic, fewer academics are willing to accept article-review requests unpaid and more are returning late or rushed reviews. Simultaneously, submissions to journals have not decreased. Flaherty speaks to a number of experts in the field, who discuss the possible causes of the situation, such as a diminished number of tenure-track faculty, and debate solutions such as paying reviewers for their time and expertise and curbing revise-and-resubmit responses.
