Journal of Morphology Reviewer Training Workshop led by Matthias Starck, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Morphology.

Peer reviewing is the key to scientific feedback and quality control in scientific publishing. The exponentially growing number of scientific publications, increasing competitiveness and complexity of the scientific world impose higher demands on quality reviews. This workshop aims providing a guide for early-career scientists through their first experiences in reviewing. In particular, it will provide a guideline on how to efficiently produce informative, fair and critical analysis of research that results in reviews helpful for editors and authors. Participants will engage in interactive group discussion which will focus on learning the perspectives of authors, peer-reviewers, and editors during the peer review process. Though the event is meant for early-career scientists, all are welcome to attend. The event is free and lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to Katie Dickinson: in the case you are interested to attend this event.
