This year’s Peer Review Week (PRW), a yearly event led by academic publishers and societies, as well as other scholarly organisations, is dedicated to “Trust in Peer Review.” During the week of September 21 - 25, participating organisations will highlight the critical role of peer review in research with a week of virtual events and activities.
The importance of reliable scholarly publications has rarely been as public or pressing as now, with the world in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic. Maintaining trust in the peer review decision-making process is paramount if we are to solve the world’s most pressing problems. This global, week-long event will shine a light on how the peer review process works and why it helps build trust in research.
In this time of uncertainty, ensuring that peer review is trustworthy has never been more urgent. All scholarly and scientific societies, researchers, editors, publishers, libraries, universities, funders, and anyone interested in the advancement of high-quality research are invited to join during Peer Review Week for this celebration and learning experience.
Peer Review Week is a global event celebrating the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality. It brings together individuals, institutions, and organisations committed to sharing the central message that good peer review, whatever shape or form it might take, is critical to scholarly communications.
