Lunch & Learn: The Fundamentals of Peer Review - Jefferson Institute for Bioprocessing
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? Who are “peer reviewers”? And how do researchers get involved in the process? At 12pm on Monday, August 29, we’ll hold a peer review workshop at the Jefferson Institute for Bioprocessing to answer these questions and more.

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.

We will cover:
- Overview of peer review: its goals, people, and process
- How to effectively review a manuscript
- Addressing reviewer comments
- Who are peer reviewers? Who gets to become one?
