GDPR, Privacy and Integrity in Journal Publishing: Good Practice for Submission and Peer Review Processes

Report from the Joint EASE and European Commission
DG Research & Innovation Workshop
Brussels, 11 October 2019

Reports from the joint meeting between EASE and the European Council in October 2019 have been compiled into a single document, summarising the discussions from the event, and presenting a series of recommendations regarding the implementation of GDPR and its effect on peer review and journal publishing.

Document contents:

  • Workshop report
  • Conclusions and recommendations
  • One size fits all? GDPR and different peer review models
  • Reconciling the right of a data subject to demand removal of their data with the need to keep the data for archival reasons
  • Boundaries of the author’s right to access to data
  • Responsibility for ensuring that no personal data are contained in the published article
  • Conclusion

We believe this document will provide our members and other editors with good practice recommendations to use in their own environments.
