Then come along to this session and learn all about the mysterious art of peer review.

Publishing peer-reviewed research is the hallmark of academic scholarship. The peer review process ensures rigour and quality in research by close critical reading and constructive feedback.

Through an informal discussion with experienced academic journal editors and peer-reviewers, participants will leave with a greater understanding of what happens when they submit in an article for review, but also of being a reviewer themselves.

The session will cover:

  • The importance and process of peer-review
  • Authorship ethics and etiquette
  • Giving and receiving constructive feedback
  • Top tips for getting published
