        Subject: Peer Review Processes

Hello all,

I was hoping to start a discussion on peer review processes. Looking at the
submission guidelines for the DH2014, I noticed that the ADHO "has
discontinued the anonymization of papers during the review process (moving
to single-blind review)". I'm wondering why this is, and what people think
of such a move?

I've always been of the opinion that single-blind review has few benefits
when compared with double-blind processes, and I've also heard some
convincing arguments in relation to more open models.

I have limited experience as a reviewer, so I am curious to know if there
are any merits to a single-blind review process?

Thanks as always...
