Could you please list the panelists and their affiliations at the beginning or the end of your post for the record? Thanks! Also, what questions did the audience have?


Hi Kris. Here' the panelist info:

1. Susan Starr, Editor, JMLA
2. Eric Schnell, Associate Professor, Prior Health Sciences University Library, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH
3. Melissa Rethlefsen, Education Technology Librarian, Mayo Clinic Library, Rochester, MN
4. Rachel Walden, Librarian, Eskind Biomedical Library, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN

Questions/Comments--I can recall two now, but I believe everything was recorded:

1. Elizabeth Lund from MLA stated that the print publication process is a minor part of delays from article submission to publication; most lag is due to the review process.

2. Karen Butter from UCSF stated that we need some form of peer review, in response to Eric Schnell's observation that traditional peer review was more of a management mechanism than a quality filtering process. Eric agreed that we need peer review, but argued that it can be in different forms than before.
