The aim of this workshop is to inform participants of the procedures, methods and constraints of writing a peer review. By taking part in this course researchers will discover new ways in which to structure and write a review.

  • the editors needs and constraints, and how this can influence a reviewer's task
  • your ability to produce a worthwhile review


Participants should bring copies of three or four papers that have been published in a journal for which they think they could be asked to write a peer review. Please make sure that you have recently read at least one of these papers.
