IOP Publishing (IOPP) is revolutionising peer review learning with the launch of the world’s first peer review certification programme dedicated to the physical sciences. ‘Peer review excellence: IOP training and certification’ will give early career researchers the ability to review with confidence, increasing trust and standardising the quality of the process.
Peer review is a critical component of scholarly publishing. When completed by dedicated and competent reviewers it helps to safeguard the quality, validity, authority and rigour of academic work.
Peer review excellence: IOP training and certification, which launches this week to coincide with Peer Review Week, is completely free and offers a blend of digital learning with the opportunity to review a manuscript in real time, under the tutelage of experienced editors and reviewers of IOPP journals.
Live online workshops will be co-chaired by the programme’s ambassadors — top-level physicists from around the world. ‘IOP trusted reviewer status’ will be achieved following the submission of a top-quality review report, as graded by experienced editors. IOP trusted reviewers will have demonstrated a high level of peer review competence and the ability to constructively critique scientific literature to an exceptional standard.
