Course description

In this course, we provide some background and context to the role of peer review in the research community. For early-stage researchers, understanding the role of the peer reviewer is important so that they can constructively use the feedback that has been shared for their research papers after submission to a journal.

We will also discuss why peer review is considered to be so important for research and how it is beneficial for researchers in the growth of their academic career. In this course, we will specifically focus on the different models followed for peer review and how it helps evaluate the quality and integrity of research submitted to journals.

Within this course, we also cover how peer reviewers to some extent are involved in determining whether the paper meets the aim and scope or a specific journal and to what extent novel findings are presented in research articles. At the end of the course, early-stage researchers and students will have covered the following aspects:

  1. Introduction to Peer Review Process
  2. Understanding the Different Models of Peer Review
  3. Journal Decisions and Revision Requirements
  4. Ethical Policies for Peer Review
