Peer review week, with a theme of “Recognition for Review’ celebrates ‘the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality’ through a variety of free in-person and online events.

Events that may be of interest to UM patrons include:

Recognition for Peer Reviewers: Building a Culture of Credit in Scholarly Publishing (Webinar on Tuesday, September 20th at 11am EST)

  • ‘This Webinar will focus on some innovative approaches publishers are taking to acknowledge the contributions of their peer reviewer communities. These include working with individual journals to create a culture of peer reviewer recognition using targeted, journal-specific efforts, building systemic networks of recognition throughout a publisher community, or by integrating with organizations like Publons or ORCID that connect peer review activity to broader publication and research activity. Peer review is just one piece of the research continuum, and individuals that participate in this process should be recognized for their contributions!’ (Register)

Perspectives on peer review: A panel discussion (Panel discussion that can be streamed or watched later on Wednesday, Sept 21st at 12pm EST)

  • Panelists include: Dr. Deborah Poff, Vice-President Strategic Development at Pacific Coast University for Workplace Health Sciences; Dr. Diane L. Kelsall, Deputy Editor, Clinical of the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ); and Dr. Jessie McGowan, senior information scientist at the Institute of Population Health in Ottawa (Stream)
