How do you peer-review? Apparently you are just supposed to miraculously know. Many of us never receive formal training in peer review, yet our peer-reviews are the cornerstone of scientific legitimacy. Constructive, respectful, coherent reviews nurture dialogue and advance research. So, how can we review papers in an efficient way? Are there techniques that could make the process more efficient and ensure that we give the authors the most useful feedback? In this short course, we will hear from peer-review experts about how they go about the process. We will also have examples that the audience can give feedback on and discuss.
