Peer Review Week 2022 – Research Integrity In Peer Review


Peer Review Week is a global event celebrating the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality. The event brings together individuals, institutions, and organizations committed to sharing the central message that good peer review, whatever shape or form it might take, is critical to scholarly communications. Over 35 organisations including FEMS are involved in Peer Review Week 2022, including scholarly publishers, societies, service providers, consultants, funders, universities and librarians.

The theme of Peer Review Week 2022 (19-23 September) is Research Integrity in Peer Review. Participating organisations will organise virtual events and activities to highlight the ways in which peer review contributes to and reinforces trust in scholarship. Whether reviews are published or private, anonymous or signed, posted to a preprint, or raised to editors after publication, we rely on expert opinions to vet research prior to publication and help correct the record when mistakes occur. How can the scholarly community demonstrate research integrity, enhance understanding of peer review, and promote trust in review processes? These questions and more will be explored during PRW 2022.

You can follow and participate to the discussion on social media with the hashtags #PeerReviewWeek22 and #ResearchIntegrity.
