peerreviewweek.jpgToday is the first day of Peer Review Week, the third annual global event celebrating the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality. This year’s theme is Transparency in Review.  We’ll be publishing new posts each day highlighting the various interpretations of what transparency means for reviewers, authors, and editors. Get a head start on this year’s theme by watching our webinar on Trust and Transparency in Peer Review, which originally aired in 2015 as part of the inaugural Peer Review Week.


Are you an active peer reviewer? If you’ve been keeping your Publons profile up to date, you’ll be eligible for the 2017 Publons Peer Review Awards, presented by Publons. Wiley is a proud sponsor of the Awards and partner to Publons. The 2017 Peer Review award winners will be announced this week. The winner of the Sentinel Award—for outstanding advocacy, innovation or contribution to scholarly peer review—will be announced on Tuesday, September 19th.  Keep an eye out for a post later this week on how our partnership has grown.


Attending the Peer Review Congress in Chicago? Check out the Peer Review Week panel discussion, “Under the Microscope: Transparency in Peer Review” at 5:30pm CDT on September 12th, directly after the close of the Congress. If you’re unable to attend in person, you can watch a livestream of the discussion on the @PeerRevWeek Twitter account.


Check back in daily and follow along on social media throughout the week using the hashtags #PeerRevWk17 and #TransparencyinReview.
