Scientific Peer Review Workshop

August 6, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Peer reviewers play a central and critical part in the scientific peer-review process. Peer-reviewers help journal editors and the scientific community determine the integrity of the scholarly scientific record (COPE). Participation in scientific peer-review is a major contribution to biomedical research and public health. However, many peer-reviewers come to the role without any guidance on best practices in peer reviewing and are largely unaware of how peer-reviewing services can be used to support their academic career development.

Course Outcomes
The interactive workshop will cover how to write a scientific manuscript from introduction to conclusion, and :

  •  Top 10 tips for conducting a top-notch peer review;
  • Converting peer-review into service for career development;
  • Documenting peer-review for tenure and promotion reviews;
  • Reverse-engineering peer-review to optimize own research;
  • Answers & guidance from leading editors and peer-reviewers
