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.
