How to Get the Most Out of Modern Peer Review

Thu 30 Mar 2017


A scientist cannot do anything that is not checked and rechecked by scientists of this network before it is accepted. (Sune Bergström)*

The Office of Scholarly Communication invites you to a workshop to discover how you can make peer review count for your research.

Join Cambridge researchers, along with guest speakers from publishers eLife, F1000, CUP, PLOS and Nature Scientific Data, and peer review platform Publons, to demystify the peer review process and explore:

  • practical tips for the digital age peer-review
  • getting formal recognition for your peer review work
  • the role of peer-reviewer in checking supporting information, and tips and tricks for peer-reviewing research data
  • Open Evaluation - what is it and what does it achieve?
  • improving the quality of research through peer review
  • innovations in peer review - novel paths towards the same goal

Coffee and lunch will be provided

The day's programme is available here:

We are grateful to eLife, F1000, PLOS and Scientific Data for sponsoring this event.
