Peer Review Week 2019
The Global Peer Review Awards are announced each year during Peer Review Week. #PeerRevWk19 runs from 16 - 20 September, 2019, and is dedicated to all things peer review. It brings recognition to reviewers worldwide, and raises awareness of the key challenges they face, including:
- the deluge of publications
- a lack of transparency
- outdated or inefficient technology
- a scarce array of reviewer profiles
The theme for Peer Review Week 2019 is 'Quality in Peer Review.' If you would like to get involved please send your contributions and ideas to email@example.com using the subject line 'Peer Review Week.'
Watch our exclusive Publons Academy On-Demand Webinar for Peer Review Week, covering content from the first four modules of the Publons Academy, the leading online training course for reviewers. By watching this webinar, you will receive a unique link to fast track the first four modules of the course.
