Sense About Science held a workshop on peer review in collaboration with the Research Information Network, Vitae, Elsevier and the Voice of Young Science.

This afternoon event was held at the University of Sussex, Brighton and was free and for early career researchers in all sciences, engineering and medicine (PhD students, post-docs or equivalent in first job).

The workshop discussed the process of peer review in journal publishing and explored the criticisms of the peer review process. What does peer review do for science? Does it detect fraud and misconduct? Will it illuminate good ideas or shut them down? For more information, see the programme below.

The RIN’s Liason and Partnerships Officer, Branwen Hide, spoke at the event on ‘The changing scholarly communications landscape: What does this mean for peer review?’ - her presentation is also available below.
