Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, we are delighted to announce that the 2ndPeer Review Week will be held September 19th through the 25th 2016.
Peer Review Week is a global event celebrating the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality. The event brings together individuals, institutions and organizations committed to sharing the central message that good peer review, whatever shape or form it might take, is critical to scholarly communications.
Having been one of the four organizations that founded Peer Review week last year, we’re delighted that the planning committee has swelled considerably with organizations representing a whole range of perspectives and stakeholder groups.
This year’s theme is Recognition for Review, exploring all aspects of how those participating in review activity - in publishing, grant review, conference submissions, promotion and tenure, and more - should be recognized for their contribution.
Planned activities include virtual and in-person events including webinars, videos, interviews and social media activities designed to improve understanding of the principle of peer review and how it is practiced within the scholarly community.
We will also feature a comprehensive list of online resources to advance our understanding of peer review and its role in 21st century scholarship.
