Description

Peer review is an integral part of the scholarly publishing process, which makes peer reviewing an essential and highly recommended skill for researchers to have. Yet, acquiring this skill requires training and a certain degree of experience, which has restricted the pool of peer reviewers that journal editors can draw from. On the other hand, being a peer reviewer can help researchers, especially early career researchers, build their communication and critical thinking abilities, stay updated and contribute actively to developments in their area of research.

In this video program, you will understand the current state of peer review and the importance of involving ECRs in this process. It also emphasizes the need for ECRs to train and develop their peer reviewing skills, which helps expand and diversify the limited pool of peer reviewers. The engaging program presents you with useful tips and practical advice to help you kick-start your peer review career, get invitations to peer review from journal editors, and get acknowledgement for your work. You will also learn the key steps to write a peer review for a scholarly journal, avoid common errors, and the best practices post review. By the end of the program, you will have all the information you need and a clear road map to advance your academic career and make an impact as a peer reviewer.
