Diversity in peer review

About this video

While peer review is the cornerstone of research, diversity in peer review is the cornerstone of the review process. To mark Peer Review Week 2018, Researcher Academy has directed its focus towards the importance of diversity in peer review and how individuals in different roles can further the overall diversity in academia.

In this webinar, experts discuss two dimensions of how peer review can help diversify both the review process and academia. They emphasise how peer-reviewers can address bias in research and its reporting and elaborate on the need for early career researchers in the peer review process.

You will learn how as a reviewer, you can encourage authors and editors in enhancing diversity in academia and the role you can play in making the process of peer review stronger through the tools of diversity.
