Convener: Ina Pohle  | Co-Conveners: Wouter Berghuijs , Hannes Müller-Thomy , Nilay Dogulu 
Tue, 19 Apr, 17:30–19:00

Peer review of scientific papers is an important part of research practice, but early career scientists often have little opportunity to learn how to review papers effectively. As a result, to a novice reviewer the review work can become as challenging as writing a scientific paper itself.

This short course, highlighting the importance of good quality peer review, will give early-stage researchers guidelines on how to be an effective reviewer, while elaborating on some basic aspects of reviewing a scientific paper (such as writing focus, content assessment, clarity and editing).

We are delighted to announce Prof. András Bárdossy (University Stuttgart, Stuttgart, Germany) & Prof. Erwin Zehe (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany) as speakers of this short course.

In cooperation with the Young Hydrologic Society (

The course is open to everyone although the number of seats is limited by the capacity of the room. If you want to sit: be on time.
For any additional information, please contact the conveners.

Public information: We are looking forward to a great discussion between our expert panel (András Bárdossy, Erwin Zehe, Axel Kleidon) and the audience.
Based on the crucial question "Reviewing - burden or the most important community service?" the discussion will focus on different aspects of reviewing, also covering the benefits of reviewing a paper.
