There can be no doubt that peer review is of central importance for scholarly publishing. More technically, peer review serves to evaluate the quality of articles for publication in journals.


Most new academics will sooner or later participate in the peer review process – both as authors and as reviewers. It is thus increasingly important to understand the formal and informal rules of the peer review system. This workshop transmits such theoretical knowledge and practical competences. Some of the core questions we will deal with are: What makes a good research article – and what makes a good peer review? Which types of peer review do exist? Which ethical aspects need to be considered when doing a peer review? What are key points of criticism of the current peer review system? How can I become a peer reviewer?

Further information about the workshop can be found in the syllabus "Introduction to the Peer Review Process".
