PeerReviewWeek_LOGO_2018_FINAL.jpg

Academic journal editors say that getting reviewers to accept review invitations is the hardest part of their job. At the same time, there is an abundance of researchers like you, who have the motivation and determination to break into the world of peer review, but aren't given the opportunity.

Our webinars, launched during Peer Review Week and aligned with it's theme, Diversity and Inclusion in Peer Review, are helping bridge the gap between reviewers and editors. 

Join us as we cover content from the first four modules of the Publons Academy, the leading online training course for peer reviewers. This includes:

  • an overview of the peer review process in academic publishing

  • an understanding of what editors look for in reviewers

  • how to break into the world of peer review

  • the structure of a peer review report

  • managing bias and conflicts of interest.

**Special offer** Sign up and attend one of our webinars and you'll receive a special code to fast-track your way to graduation in the Publons Academy, boosting your discoverability to editors in your field.
