Description

The Give and Take of Peer Review

Having your application critiqued by an impartial, astute colleague, who is not ‘close’ to your research, is one of the most powerful tools researchers can use to improve the way their research is communicated.

Peer review, done properly, is a positive experience for reviewer AND reviewee, honing skills which will increase the likelihood of producing strong impact case studies, journal articles and of course funding applications. In fact, for the majority of bids you will write, peer review is a compulsory step in the external funding application process. If you intend to apply for external research funding, you therefore need to understand the peer review process.

Moreover, the skills and the discipline involved in giving and receiving criticism are transferable to other areas of your professional life, making peer review a valuable aspect of your research career.

This session is for you if:

  • You are intending to apply for external research funding
  • You want to develop/improve your skills at giving and receiving feedback
  • You want to understand how being a part of this process (as reviewer or reviewee) can benefit you and your career.

Key features of the session:

  • Find out how the experience of peer review can be of benefit to you
  • Explore (and practice) the hard and soft skills associated with being an effective reviewer AND reviewee
  • Consider the responsibilities involved in being a reviewer and a reviewee
