The Peer Review: the nuts & bolts” is a free half-day workshop for early career researchers. Should peer review detect plagiarism, bias or 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?
If these are the questions you have in mind, this is a must-attend workshop for you.
