Abstract

As of January 1, 2023, the journal Salud, Ciencia y Tecnología will adopt the open peer review and post-publication system. Open peer review responds to a transparent open science model, based on open identity of reviewers, open and unstructured review reports, participation and open interaction of the scientific community. On the other hand, post-publication peer review is based on the generation of versions of the manuscript as it is revised and/or corrected by the authors, with immediate availability after the initial editorial review and with traceability of the "evolution" of the scientific article. Both review processes combined allow for an open and frameless debate and public discussion of the research results. In addition, from a pedagogical/didactic point of view, they serve to learn how to improve scientific writing processes and as a reference for teaching research. According to DOAJ data, 212 scientific journals have adopted open peer review, but only 13 of them have adopted post-publication peer review; however, there are no Latin American journals that combine both processes. The editorial team of Salud, Ciencia y Tecnología feels a commitment to open science and will accompany authors and reviewers in this transition process that will undoubtedly be full of challenges, successes and failures; and if we stop to think a little, it is the essence of science to innovate, transform and continuously improve.
