Learn from the experts: peer review workshop

Peer review workshops led by Sense about Science

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 hosted a 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 happened at the workshop?

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 examined 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 had the opportunity to:

  • discuss their questions and concerns about peer review
  • hear why peer review matters to the public as a tool to evaluate the status of research claims
  • gain insights into the journal publishing scene
  • gather tips on how to get involved in peer review

All attendees also became part of Voice of Young Science (VoYS), a network of early career researchers who play an active role in public debates about science.

Who is the workshop for?

These half-day workshops were free to attendĀ for STEM and social science early career researchers (PhDs, post-docs or equivalent), trainees, and medical professionals.

Details on the 2022 workshops will be available soon.
