Peer Review Week 2021
Monday, September 20, 2021

This week is Peer Review Week 2021! The theme of this year’s worldwide peer review fest is “Identity in Peer Review”. In addition to webinar events from our own library on topics touching on scholar identity and peer review, libraries around the country will also be offering events, training, and activities for both new and seasoned scholars.

Our own library will offer 3 events this week, hosted by scholarly communications librarian Eric Robinson:


How to Be a Peer Reviewer

This session kicks off Peer Review Week with an overview of the peer review process, tips on how to get involved as a reviewer, and some resources for reviewer training suitable for novices or seasoned professionals.


Understanding Open Peer Review

Learn how new models of peer review are responding to criticisms of traditional "double-blind" peer review.


Publons for Peer Review Recognition

This webinar introduces the Publons platform for verifying and recognizing participation in the scholarly peer-review process. Publons offers a much-needed option for scholars wishing to receive credit for the work they contribute to screening and improving our scholarly literature.

Additional peer review events, information, and activities from other institutions and organizations can be viewed via a master online schedule at the Peer Review Week 2021 website.
