Workshop on Peer Reviewing Scientific Papers

Monday June 19, 8.30-10.00 hrs

ISBT is looking for early career scientists who are willing to be reviewers for papers in Vox Sanguinis, the ISBT Science Series and submitted congress abstracts. Therefore, we will host a workshop on peer review during the congress.

Peer review is the method by which grants are allocated, papers published and much more. Yet there is very little training in peer review, often it is up to the new reviewer to find their own way around the joys and difficulties of the review process. Becoming involved in peer review can be very informative, help you with your own scientific writing and be a career enhancing experience. It is an opportunity to get yourself on the map and a good addition to your c.v.

The workshop is open to early career scientists who wish to offer themselves as peer reviewers and to find out how to navigate around the process. It is also open to current reviewers who wish to refresh their reviews or find out more about peer review within ISBT.

You do not need to register to attend this workshop.
