Peer Review – reviewed

In the Peer Review – reviewed series, we invite campaigners, researchers and thought leaders in peer review to share their thoughts on why peer review matters to them. By engaging with the faces behind peer review, we can get a better overview of the role of peer review in scholarly communications, and what changes need to happen to make peer review count.

We will be adding a new voice from the community each month to this series, so don’t forget to check back to keep up-to-date. Click on the thumbnails below to read why peer review matters.
