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 process. 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. Moreover, recent problems and developments in peer reviewing are highlighted.
