Peer review is a relatively structured scientific and social process that is critical to the healthy function of the scientific community. Why then is the process so difficult to navigate? This month we are highlighting the peer review process. It started with this month’s event on Peeref: Reviewer Roulette, where scholars are invited to share the best and worst peer reviewer comments that they have received.
In this webinar, we want to discuss why there is such a variety of reviewer quality by understanding reviewer behavior. The takeaway message will be a set of top tips for handling these difficult reviews and getting published.
Questions about handling difficult reviewers and the editorial decision-making process?
Join your LetPub Webinar Series host, Dr. Clark Holdsworth, to receive must-have guidance for writing an effective response letter suitable for international peer-reviewed journals. Learn how to predict reviewer behavior, so you can streamline the revision process and get published faster.
Join this educational webinar at 9 AM ET Wednesday, August 23 (9 PM GMT+8 on Wednesday, August 23).
