Sense About Science will be holding a workshop on Peer Review at the University of Sussex on Friday 5th March. This afternoon event is free and for early career researchers in all sciences, engineering and medicine (PhD students, post-docs or equivalent in first job).
During the workshop we discuss the process of peer review in journal publishing and explore 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?
