Peer Reviewer Training Course

You are a published author.

Now, how can you add significant value to your resume and reputation?

By becoming a peer reviewer! Being invited as a peer reviewer by a journal amounts to being accepted as an expert in the field. It is a kind of recognition in itself to be known as a peer reviewer, and this can be a stepping stone for novice researchers. Apart from this, reviewers have the opportunity to be on top of new developments in their field and expand their knowledge. It is vital for an early career researcher to expand his/her network, and becoming a peer reviewer offers a great opportunity to interact with journal editors and fellow researchers in the field. As a result, many early career researchers look forward to receiving peer review invitations.

You have never reviewed before.

Will a journal accept you as a peer reviewer?

Journal editors are always looking to expand their pool of peer reviewers. Moreover, many of them prefer to recruit early career researchers since they are more likely to accept invitations, have time to spend on reviewing, and are eager to prove themselves and thus likely to be thorough. So seize your chance at climbing up a step and becoming a peer reviewer!

You are already an established peer reviewer.

Is there anything else you can learn to make your peer review stand out?

Yes, you can learn from the best! This course has been curated by Editage Insights experts, and the advanced version includes some super valuable pointers from learned academics who have decades of experience as peer reviewers.
