Peer reviewers are an essential part of the scholarly publishing community and the foundation for safeguarding the quality and integrity of scientific and scholarly research. That’s why next week we’re continuing our annual commitment to support #PeerReviewWeek18 with a jam-packed week of activity. This year’s theme is: “Diversity in Peer Review” which is timely, as diversity has been an emerging conversation in research communications.

#PeerReviewWeek18 will run next week September 10th-15th 2018. Check in with us next week for: peerreviewweek_logo_2018_v1.jpg

Peer Review Week was originally sparked from informal conversations between ORCID, ScienceOpen and Wiley. Now in its fourth year, the industry support has grown hugely and is supported by numerous publishers and intermediaries. We’re all still working to share the same central message: good peer review, whatever shape or form it might take, is critical to scholarly communications.

We want everyone to feel they have the opportunity to contribute to #PeerReviewWeek18. Engage with us during our activities, discover our PRW page for related resources, and connect with all the Twitter activity using #PeerReviewWeek18. Be sure to check out how you can get involved with Peer Review Week and include #PeerReviewWeek18 and the Peer Review Week logo in your own activities.
