Workshop 1:  Reap the benefits of peer review

This 90-minute Zoom, delivered by Prof. Amanda Salis, is designed to help registrants to confidently undertake full, fair and fast peer review of research papers. It highlights some surprising benefits of doing peer review, and includes details on how to not only conduct peer review and write a peer review report, it also shows you how to set up procedures to reduce the amount of time it takes to undertake peer review assignments.


It is relevant to researchers from any institution who are interested in peer reviewing research papers in a time-efficient way.
