Summer School: How to be a Peer reviewer?

University of Warwick, September 2018

Summer School Aims:

  • Understand what different review processes entail (e.g. article reviews, funding proposals)
  • Learn how to be a constructive and effective reviewer
  • Become familiar with journal rankings and identify which journals might be more relevant to your research field
  • Learn about important aspects of reviewing, including biases in knowledge production
  • Learn how to respond to reviewers

The 1st and 2nd day will be targeted at natural scientists and the 4th and 5th day will be targeted at social scientists with different workshop leaders being involved in the two parts. The 3rd day will be a writing bootcamp and a CV workshop where both natural and social scientists will have access to a quiet room with desks, lunch, refreshments and academic writing tutors to help them review papers, proposals, and CVs.
