Event description

Description


All researchers will encounter peer review during their career, both as an author of research papers, books, fellowship applications or grants and as an expert who has been asked to review one of these documents. This workshop will introduce researchers to the peer review system, the process, the complexities, the responsibilities of the author and the reviewer and how to get the most out of the experience.

An awareness and knowledge of the peer review system is important so that early career researchers know what to expect when they submit their first research paper. Equally, understanding how to critically assess a research manuscript for quality, style, content, novelty and relevance gives researchers an insight into how cutting edge research is assessed and published. What should you look for in a manuscript? How can you optimise your chances of success as an author?

In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the academic publishing and peer review system through short presentations, discussions and peer review exercises. The workshop is suitable for PhD students and early career researchers who are writing a manuscript for publication or who are interested in finding out more about the peer review process.
