ASAPbio’s Preprint Reviewer Recruitment Network aims to help researchers, especially ECRs, break into reviewing or editing roles by sharing their comments and reviews of preprints as examples of their work.
We recognize that people have diverse backgrounds and prior experiences in peer review. To assist researchers in the Network in developing their expertise with writing preprint reviews, we’re offering a 90-minute workshop that will introduce the how & why of preprint review, best practices for writing reviews that will help authors and editors, and personalized feedback from an editor on your own review. We will run this workshop at 12:00pm noon EDT (convert to your time zone), on two dates: September 22 and November 1.
|12:05||Why & how to leave preprint feedback (Jessica Polka, ASAPbio)|
|12:10||How to write an effective peer review (Iain Cheeseman, ASAPbio & Whitehead/MIT )|
|12:30||What an editor looks for in a peer review (TBA)|
|12:40||Breakout sessions – workshopping draft preprint reviews|
To participate, please sign up for the network and we’ll email you a link to register. To maximize your benefit from this event, please bring a draft review to discuss with the group during the breakout session. We will also share an example paper and review ahead of the event.
