Peer review plays a key role in the dissemination of scholarly research output, and at Taylor & Francis we work to establish and sustain the highest standards of peer review. A vital part of this means ensuring that reviewers have the right resources and skills to carry out their work efficiently and effectively.

Our new program ‘Excellence in Peer Review: Taylor & Francis Reviewer Training Network’ was launched in 2019 to support researchers in becoming more effective peer reviewers. This training network is aimed at giving clear practical advice to researchers to improve the quality of the reviews they provide, as well as introducing the key principles to those who are newer to the review process.

The training program is being delivered through in-person and online workshops. Once they have been part of a workshop, participants who are experienced enough to become reviewers and who would like further experience have the opportunity to be linked with journals within their subject area.

This journal linking is the unique follow-up that we are offering to participants in our training network, offering them an opportunity to try out and hone their skills as a reviewer on live manuscripts and receive some feedback. Following this feedback process, they will receive further certification as an experienced reviewer for the journal.
