Following the overwhelming success of last year’s inaugural event, we are proud to announce that the second Peer Review Week will be held from 19th to 25th September 2016
Peer Review Week matters because of you, the people involved in peer review. Your work is critical in maintaining research quality. You are research! That’s why Publons is committed to showcasing your expertise to the world during Peer Review Week 2016. We exist to ensure you get the recognition you deserve for your efforts in making science and research more robust.
This year’s theme is ‘Recognition for Review’, and will explore all aspects of how the experts involved in the peer review process - in publishing, grant review, conference submissions, promotion, tenure, and more - deserve validation.
Planned activities include virtual and in-person events including webinars, videos, interviews and social media activities. These are designed to improve understanding of the principle of peer review and how it is practiced within the scholarly community.
Plans and events for Peer Review Week will be announced via the Peer Review Week website in coming weeks. We hope Peer Review Week will achieve our goal of engaging everyone who cares about peer review, over a few days of celebrations and discussions.
Help support Peer Review Week by engaging with our social media campaign, sharing our content and perhaps creating your own (resources are available here).
If you are planning an event and would like it to be featured on the Peer Review Week website, please send a brief description of the event to PRWeek@aaas.org, using the subject line “Peer Review Week”.
