Event Details

Join us for a one day workshop about the peer review process! 

Through mostly interactive exercises, this workshop discusses a range of approaches to Peer Review suitable for different situations (from workshops, to conferences, to peer-reviewed conferences, to journals, and more). The workshop is in two parts focusing on 1) the purpose of a review and 2) the process of a review. The aim of Part 1 (Purpose) is to help participants understand what is expected from peer reviewing, and how the information put into a review is used by organisers later in the process, and how these vary for different venues and types of submission. Part 2 (Process) covers approaches to reading, approaches to structuring a review, dos and donts, and how to judge and make appropriate recommendations. 

Following the workshop, we will invite you to test your newly acquired skills by reviewing submissions for the Interdisciplinary Digital Culture and Society Conference (DISCo)
