Qeios is experimenting with a review process that is not blind. Is the blind review really better?

Qeios is a platform for publishing papers, which does not follow the traditional way: there is no fee, and there is no editor. Also, they have no APC.

An article from the American Council on Science and Health states that the peer review process can be either single-blind or double-blind. In single-blind peer review, reviewers are aware of the author’s identity, while in double-blind peer review, neither the author nor the reviewers know each other’s identity 2.

A study conducted by the Institute of Physics found that while most researchers preferred the double-blind review process, the rejection rate for double-blind reviews was much higher than it was for single-blind reviews. According to the study, 70% of submissions were rejected under the double-blind review process, while 50% were rejected under the single-blind process 3.

In conclusion, the choice between blind and non-blind peer review depends on the specific context and goals of the review process. While double-blind review can reduce specific biases, open peer review can increase transparency and self-awareness among reviewers. The rejection rate for double-blind reviews is also higher than that of single-blind reviews 123.
