EASE Editorial School for Journal Editors: Module 3 Peer Review process and production

Wednesday, 16 November 2022 8am-10am (UK time) and repeated again at 3pm-5pm (UK time)

Module 3 of 4 Peer Review process and production

The peer review process is often considered to be the gold standard for journals, and yet the operation of peer review remains one of the main headaches for many journal editors and their publishers. Peer review is frequently inefficient, time-consuming and can fail to pick up article shortcomings. Whilst not promising to resolve a global problem, this workshop will look at the various reviewing systems being used by different journals and will provide tips for how the main problems with peer review (timeliness, quality and efficiency) can be reduced. The workshop will provide editors with the tools to make better decisions regarding the operation of peer review in their own journal, and to reduce the burden whilst also improving the quality of feedback for authors.
