[open-science] Fwd: Registry of Open Review Journals?

Such a list would certainly be nice. In a similar vein, it would be nice
to see some greater clarity of terminology. When we refer to "Open Peer
Review", does this mean:
a) non-anonymous peer review
b) Publishing the review (potentially anonymously)
d) any of the above
Discussion of this issue, including in the Wikipedia article, seems to
focus primarily on disclosure of reviewer identity. (Personally I would
prefer the emphasis to fall on publishing the review, anonymous or not).
Do we have/need specific terms to distinguish between these options?
Another dimension here involves whether the 'open' aspect is mandatory or
optional, and to whom the option is given. For instance, peerJ
gives the reviewers the option to sign their name (okay, this option always
exists implicitly, though I've had editors remove my signature before
sending my review to the authors), and gives authors the option publish the
reviews alongside the paper (whereby anonymous reviews appear as
"anonymous", and signed reviews are attributed,
Certainly this is open peer review, but rather different than the
mandatory system at, say, Biology Direct. It would be nice for such a list
to reflect these differences.
