In a reassessment of peer review practices, Lee-Ann Kastman Breuch explores how computer technology changes our understanding of this activity. She defines “virtual peer review” as the use of computer technology to exchange and respond to one another’s writing in order to improve it. Arguing that peer review goes through a remediation when conducted in virtual environments, the author suggests that virtual peer review highlights a unique intersection of social theories of language and technological literacy.

I can' believe more people aren't writing about this. If systems like SWoRD catch on, virtual peer review will become a routine part of undergraduate educate. Dr. Breuch's book is a well-researched, studied consideration of what happens when peer review shifts from oral to digital formats. It's also the only extended analysis of this issue that I've been able to find. I hope more people follow her lead soon.
