Description

The ability to review research articles should be a core skill of every research scientist.With the growing number of manuscripts being submitted to scientific journals, editors are increasingly reliant on independent experts who can deliver fair and high-quality reviews in a timely fashion. In this intensive two days’ workshop, PhD Students will be given a detailed insight into the scholar peer-reviewing processes. Participants will learn how the peer-review process works, from submission to publication (and retraction). Practical issues (like benefits, requirements and time lines) are discussed and submission and reviewing is trained in practical exercises. Moreover, recent problems and developments in peer reviewing are highlighted.
