Recognition for Peer Reviewers: Building a Culture of Credit in Scholarly Publishing

Tuesday 20th @ 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. EST

Webinar

The publishing community is working toward more meaningful and innovative ways to give reviewers credit for the essential work they provide to scholarly publishing. In conjunction with Peer Review Week 2016, this Webinar will focus on some innovative approaches publishers are taking to acknowledge the contributions of their peer reviewer communities. These include working with individual journals to create a culture of peer reviewer recognition using targeted, journal-specific efforts, building systemic networks of recognition throughout a publisher community, or by integrating with organizations like Publons or ORCID that connect peer review activity to broader publication and research activity. Peer review is just one piece of the research continuum, and individuals that participate in this process should be recognized for their contributions!

How reviewer comments affect author morale: Need for sensitive peer reviews

Thursday 22nd @ 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. GMT

Webinar

Possibly due to time constraints and the stressful nature of their work, reviewers sometimes end up giving their comments mechanically, without considering the feelings of the authors at the receiving end. This webinar shows how failing to empathize with authors can sometimes defeat the very purpose of peer review. Attending the webinar will help reviewers and editors understand the authors’ perspective and change their approach towards peer review to make it more author-centric.
