Lunch & Learn: The Fundamentals of Peer Review on Monday, August 29

Join us and the Jefferson Institute of Bioprocessing on Monday, August 29, at noon, for a lunch & learn session: The Fundamentals of Peer Review.

Hear from Dr. Steve Carney, Editor-in-Chief of Drug Discovery Today, as he leads a workshop to answer all your questions about peer review.

Peer-reviewed journals are a critical tool for sharing scientific discoveries. Through the process of peer review, these journals assess manuscripts for quality and scientific rigor, and this process guides whether manuscripts are accepted or rejected for publication. But what really happens during peer review?

The session will cover:
• An overview of peer review: its goals, people, and process
• How to effectively review a manuscript
• Addressing reviewer comments
• Who are peer reviewers?

This will be a hybrid workshop; the in-person experience will be limited only to those at the Jefferson Institute of Bioprocessing campus. The Zoom broadcast is open to everyone in the Jefferson community. REGISTER NOW.
