Diversity and inclusion in peer review

Looking forward to 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, to advance best practice, and to highlight the latest innovations in peer review.

Peer Review Week is also an opportunity to highlight the resources and support available to authors, reviewers, and those who manage the peer review process. In 2017 we launched an interactive resource hub, 360° view of peer review, to help you better understand the process and discover how becoming a peer reviewer yourself can be good for your research career.

Diversity in peer review

Peer Review Week 2018, which runs from 10 September, will encourage a global discussion about diversity and inclusion in peer review. We’re looking forward to tackling questions such as, what does diversity in peer review look like, why is it important, and how can it be promoted?

Visit the Peer Review Week website for more details about September’s celebration and follow @PeerRevWeek on Twitter for the latest news. You can also keep up to date with our Peer Review Week plans by registering for the Taylor & Francis Insights email newsletter.

Also on the theme of diversity, PhD candidate Verity Postlethwaite shares her views on the relationship between gender and publishing, in a new researcher insight. On Editor Resources, Taylor & Francis journal editor Yana Suchy tells us about the steps she’s taking to promote diversity within the Editorial Board of The Clinical Neuropsychologist.
