Debate challenges to the system.
Discuss the role of peer review for scientists and the public.
London workshop to be held at King’s College London Friday 25th April 2014, 9.30am – 12.30pm
Peer Review: The Nuts and Bolts is a free half-day workshop for early career researchers and will explore how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims.
Should peer review detect plagiarism, bias or fraud? What does peer review do for science and what does the scientific community want it to do for them? Should reviewers remain anonymous? Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down?
