Course description

Peer review is an important step in the publishing process and scientific knowledge generation. This responsibility should be carried by scientists who publish papers. Indeed, reviewing scientific manuscripts is a responsibility of all in academia. However, as a young academic one very often does not know where to start and how to review a manuscript.

This half-day workshop gives insight in how to review a scientific manuscript and what possible issues may occur. Besides two lectures we will be having interactive sessions where challenges and examples of review will be discussed.
