Join the Editors Professors Abhay Pandit and Hanry Yu for a discussion on why & how to be a referee and outstanding challenges in Peer Review.
Peer Review is the improvement process by which research is evaluated for quality and significance to a field. Expert referees provide their feedback on how scientific stories advance that field and often how research impacts society at large. Like for any art, the ability to write a good review requires practice and as well as support. In a live webinar supported by Publishing Campus and Mendeley, Editors for Biomaterials Professors Abhay Pandit and Hanry Yu will share their first-hand experience with Peer Review. Through the Editor’s lens, they will touch on their first time reviewing experience, provide tips on how to review and reviewers expectations and a glance at improvements to Peer Review.
Topics covered will include:
- The role of Peer Review in advancing science
- What Peer Review means for researchers: motivations to review and skills to be learned
- What is a good review (and how can authors learn to write better from it)
- The future of peer review: reproducibility and transparency
- The webinar will end with a live Question and Answer session where you are welcome to query the presenters on these topics.
