Sense about Science Quality and Peer Review Workshop – For Early Career Researchers

Find out about peer review. Debate challenges to the system. Discuss the role of peer review for scientists and the public.

The University of Cambridge, Friday 17 June.

Quality and Peer Review is a free half-day workshop for early career researchers and will explore how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims.

Should peer review detect plagiarism, bias and fraud? What does peer review do for science and what does the scientific community want it to do for them? Should reviewers remain anonymous? Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down?

To apply to attend this workshop, please fill out the application form here by 5pm on Wednesday, 18 May.
