We’re taking part in the annual celebration of peer review along with groups, researchers and publishers from around the globe. From 11-17 September Peer Review Week brings together individuals, institutions, and organisations in a week of activities, webinars, resources and events. Together we’re sharing the message that good peer review, whatever shape or form it might take, is essential to maintaining quality in science.
The theme of Peer Review Week 2017 is Transparency in Review. It’s a great starting point to discuss challenges of the peer review process and to talk about experiences and ideas. We’ll be sharing resources and articles throughout the week and hear from Emily Jesper-Mir in the Elsevier webinar. Take a look at our work and guides on peer review, for the public and early career researchers
For information on the week’s activities, and to access tips, videos and interviews, go to the Peer Review Week website and follow #PeerRevWk17 and #TransparencyinReview on Twitter.
Peer review: the nuts & bolts workshop
We’re also running a free peer review workshop at Glasgow Caledonian University on 20 October. So if Peer Review Week has got you excited to get involved in the process and you’re an early career researcher, find out more and apply by 2 October
