How to become an effective peer reviewer, with Dr Edgar Whitley
This workshop is the first of three Scholarly Communications Workshops to be hosted by the PhD Academy. ‘How to become an effective peer reviewer’, will introduce PhD students and early career researchers to the practices associated with being an accomplished, constructive and respected reviewer. Effective reviewers learn from the review process and, as a result, can see how to improve their own publications. Good reviewers are also recognised by the community and are often offered opportunities that enhance their academic profile, including journal editorial positions and conference track positions.
Workshop attendees will:
- develop an understanding of the life cycle of a review from a journal's perspective by following a paper through the review process
- recognize the range of ethical issues that can be faced by reviewers
- appreciate how reviews can help develop papers at different stages of the review process
- understand the differences in review process across journals.
