What to expect at the event
Our most hotly requested session of the year so far has been around peer review.
Every journal aims to maintain and improve the number and quality of their articles, but to do so requires increased pressure on the peer review system. This in turn creates an ever-increasing need for a strong pool of peer reviewers to provide considered reports in a timely manner, and to help safeguard against bad actors within the publishing landscape.
This workshop aims to both assess and address the challenges editors are facing when it comes to peer review. Both in terms of finding suitable peer reviewers and maintaining the integrity of the peer review system.
The event will include not only our suggestions for best practice, but also we will open the floor to you through break-out sessions, where we troubleshoot ideas and solutions together. We will share some of the initiatives Taylor & Francis provide to help support our editors through the peer review process, and take this opportunity to hear your ideas for future improvement.
We will discuss:
Securing peer reviewers
Addressing the challenge of finding suitable peer reviewers, how to expand your peer review pool, and how to reward active reviewers.
With case studies on how this might benefit your journal.
Peer review ethics
Addressing concerns around special issues and peer review manipulation.
Diversity in Peer Review
Discussing strategies to diversify your peer review pool while maintaining high academic standards.
This workshop is part of the 2023 On Being an Editor event series.
