Peer Review: The nuts & bolts workshop (Sense About Science)

5 September 2013 - 9:00am
Newcastle, UK

Sense About Science is now taking applications for a peer review workshop in Newcastle on Thursday 5th September. To express your interest in attending, email Victoria [email protected].

Peer Review: The nuts & bolts is a half-day workshop for early career researchers and will explore how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims.

Should peer review detect plagiarism, bias or fraud? What does peer review do for science and what does the scientific community want it to do for them? Should reviewers remain anonymous? Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down?
