Are top economists authors bypassing the peer review system?

July 27, 2007 at 9:38 am Leave a comment

MIT economy professor Glenn Ellison is asking the question “Is peer review in decline?”

The study shows that top economist authors at first rate institutions are publishing fewer papers in A listed journals and “are still quite sucessful at garnering citations”.

What do you think? Is the traditional peer review system bound to disappear completely? What would replace it? As an author how do you see your role in this trend?
