Being a peer reviewer is an essential step for those intending to pursue an academic career. As an early career researcher, it is vital that you familiarise yourself with the process of peer reviewing. Peer reviewers are invited to read articles submitted to academic journals for publication critically, and then either suggest that it is accepted, rejected, or most frequently, revised and improved before it is published.
In this workshop, you will:
• Become aware of what peer reviewing entails
• Consider why peer reviewing is necessary
• Understand the peer review process, models and ethics
• Discover strategies for writing a peer review report
• Create an ORCID identifier
