NEEDHAM, MA. STRIATUS/JBJS, Inc. is proud to announce that the American Diabetes Association (ADA)publishers of the journals Diabetes, Diabetes Care, Clinical Diabetes, and Diabetes Spectrumhas signed on to participate in PRE-val. Diabetes and Diabetes Care will be the first two ADA journals to participate.
PRE-val (Peer Review Evaluation Validation) is a new service that helps to validate the peer review process delivered by journals that are committed to legitimate peer review practices. PRE-val helps to increase the level of trust and transparency around peer review and helps readers discover quality published research.
By participating in PRE-val, ADA is helping to recognize the valuable effort of editors and reviewers who ensure that their journals publish the best material. By offering their community a free tool available upon publication, the journals will set themselves apart from other publications where a variety of approaches to peer review exist.
"We're very excited to have such a prestigious organization participate," said Adam Etkin, Managing Director at PRE. "The American Diabetes Association understands the importance of peer review and realizes that new technologies can support and improve upon existing methods."
"There are a variety of ways in which PRE-val can be implemented to support the effort that the American Diabetes Association puts into the peer review of our journals," said Christian S. Kohler, managing director of scholarly journal publishing for the American Diabetes Association. "The current system of peer review is incredibly important to researchers and scholarly publishers, but new innovations such as PRE-val allow us to build on that foundation."
