Abstract
The British Journal of Occupational Therapy strives to publish high quality research and scholarly papers. The journal faces a challenge in how best to meet this aim in the future. Regardless of the choices it makes, the focus on quality cannot be lost. One of the key features of quality is the peer review process, which all submitted articles must undergo. This paper reviews the policy of double-blind (anonymous) peer reviewing and suggests that an open peer review policy would provide greater transparency, accountability and credit, thereby enhancing the quality of the journal and strengthening its position for the future.
