Peer Review Week 2018 – Diversity in Peer Review
2018 is the year of diversity and inclusion in peer review. The goal of Peer Review Week 2018, held 10-15 September 2018, is to raise awareness and explore issues surrounding diversity in peer review and what this means for researchers, for funders, and others concerned with peer review.
