Transparency is hot topic in scholarly communications, with compelling arguments both for and against increased openness and transparency. Within the realm of peer review, it has the potential to build trust in published research and publisher processes, while also allowing researchers to demonstrate the extent to which they contribute to the scholarly record. However, there are concerns that it may jeopardise nascent careers and increase the burden on high-performing reviewers. This talk will explore these points using the case study of a recently piloted integrated, automated transparent review workflow solution across a number of academic journals from several publishers. It will discuss how the project began, the motivations of the involved parties and the results of the pilot to date.
