Peer review: the nuts and bolts

A Sense about Science workshop - Friday 20 Oct, 2-6pm, Glasgow

You’re invited to join a free half-day Sense about Science workshop, sponsored by Taylor & Francis. Find out how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims.

Peer Review: the nuts and bolts is designed for early career researchers and will tackle questions like:

  • Should peer review detect plagiarism, bias, or fraud?
  • What does peer review do for science and what does the scientific community want it to do for them?
  • Should reviewers remain anonymous?
  • Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down?

Taylor & Francis recently hosted a similar workshop at our offices in London. We caught up with Huayi and Adam who attended the event to hear their reflections on the day.

To apply to attend this workshop at Glasgow Caledonian University, please fill out this application form by 5pm on Monday 2 October.
