Scientific Peer Review Short Course - E-learning



Although there is scientific peer review information freely available on the internet, this short course will help participants to navigate the processes in reviewing scientific papers. This short course has several short quizzes to test newly acquired information and skills; opportunities to review two manuscripts, once with guiding questions and once without any guidance; a chance to see what others have commented on in reviews and finally a personal reflection on future training needs as a peer reviewer. Key resources are also provided as participants start their scholarly pursuit as a peer reviewer.
