Diversity and inclusion in peer review
Peer Review Week 2018
Peer Review Week is a global event celebrating the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining research quality. It aims to showcase the important work of editors and reviewers, advance best practice, and highlight new innovations.
Diversity in peer review
The theme of the 2018 Peer Review Week was diversity and inclusion in peer review, encouraging us all to consider what diversity in peer review looks like and why it is important.
Another aim of the event was encouraging researchers who are not currently reviewers to get involved, particularly those from underrepresented groups. Not only will this help the research community but it can bring many benefits for the researcher’s own career.
In a series of Peer Review Week posts we looked at why and how researchers can get involved with peer review:
- Your research community needs YOU … to become a peer reviewer
- Why should you become a reviewer?
- How to become a peer reviewer
- Tips for new peer reviewers
