All works in the HWW series will undergo editorial review.
For scholars wishing to seek the input of peers in their scholarly community, the HWW series also provides the opportunity for open and transparent synchronous review, a model that draws its inspiration from MediaCommons’s peer-to-peer reviewing strategy. Benefits of open peer review include decreasing time to publication, fostering scholarly communication, and strengthening communities of practice.
