The fifth annual Peer Review Week is quickly approaching with the theme in 2019 being “Quality in Peer Review”. Peer Review Week is a global event celebrating the importance that peer review plays in the role of the publishing process to maintain quality among research. Peer Review Week will take place Sept. 16-20. Academics are encouraged to participate and contribute to Peer Review Week.
The Peer Review Week committee consists of 40 individuals from 28 organizations, but all authors and researchers are encouraged to participate in a variety of ways. Authors and researchers are encouraged to host a webinar, run a workshop, organize a panel discussion, write a blog post, or even film a short video explaining why peer review is important. If you have further ideas of how to contribute, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org using the subject line "Peer Review Week" with a brief description of your idea.
Engaging with Peer Review Week and spreading the word through social media are essential. To participate on social media, follow @PeerRevWeek on Twitter and use the hashtags: #QualityInPeerReview and #PeerRevWk19. Also, be sure to check out the Peer Review Week YouTube channel that features brief videos discussing important topics involving peer review.
