Taylor & Francis is proud to support Sense about Science, a charity that aims to put science and evidence in the hands of the public.
On 22 October 2021, Sense about Science will be hosting the free online event ‘Quality and peer review’, examining the process of peer review, its future and the associated challenges – offering insights and guidance from experts and academic professionals.
What does peer review do for science and what does the scientific community want it to do for them? Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down? Should it detect plagiarism, bias or fraud? How can early career researchers engage with the process?
Each event examines the process of peer review in detail through a combination of group work, panel talks from experienced editors, authors and reviewers, and audience discussion.
Participants have the opportunity to:
All attendees will also become part of Voice of Young Science (VoYS), a network of early career researchers who play an active role in public debates about science.
These half-day workshops are free to attend for STEM and social science early career researchers (PhDs, post-docs or equivalent), trainees, and medical professionals.
The deadline to apply to attend each event is 4 October 2021. Apply for the events using this form.
