Peer Review Week 19-23 September

Peer Review is a vitally important part of any scholarly work as it helps to maintain research quality. This year’s theme for PRW is “Research Integrity: Creating and supporting trust in research.” 

Peer review shapes how researchers and the general public view individual studies and scientific research as a whole. Whether reviews are published or private, anonymous or signed, posted to a preprint, or raised to editors after publication, we rely on expert opinions to vet research prior to publication and help correct the record when mistakes occur. How can the scholarly community demonstrate research integrity, enhance understanding of peer review, and promote trust in review processes? We’ll explore these questions and more during PRW 2022.  

Many organisations around the world are hosting different events, which means they are not usually well timed for Australian time zones, but you may get a recording of the session if you register. Some of the sessions include:  

Free Webinar: Tackling Peer Review in the era of Open Access 

EASE/UKRIO panel discussion on peer review 

Research Integrity: How Preprinting Can Enhance Trust in Research
