Short description:

Peer review at research journals is a cornerstone of the academic profession. The skill of writing useful peer reviews of others’ research is a community service that is valuable for advancing knowledge and shaping a field’s technical and conceptual standards. In this workshop, we will enter the black box of the peer review process with a former journal editor and learn what makes a good peer review and reviewer. Hands on practice will be included. The workshop will also cover the current state and future evolution of academic peer review systems.
