Peer review: the nuts and bolts

Friday, 20 October 2017

Sense About Science event.

Find out about peer review. Debate challenges to the system. Discuss the role of peer review for scientists and the public.

Peer review: the nuts and bolts is a free half-day workshop hosted by Sense about Science 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. It will be held at Glasgow Caledonian University on Friday 20 October 2017.

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?
