How to Become a Peer Reviewer—Doing your Share for the Research Community
Peer review is one of the most critical processes in academic publishing and continues to have a significant effect on the number and type of studies that get published each year. Being a part of the evaluation process and determining the accuracy of the work submitted is as important as having publications in the peer-reviewed journals. Not only it works as a catalyst in boosting your career as a researcher, but also keeps you up-to-date about the latest research even before it’s published. Celebrating the Peer Review Week 2019, Enago Academy conducted a live webinar which will guide researchers step-by-step to become a part of this rigorous but crucial process of scholarly publishing.
Through this webinar, the attendees will learn:
