Peer review workshop discussion

In 2016, Sense About Science will run two workshops on Peer Review in London and Scotland. "Peer Review: the nuts & bolts" is a free half-day workshop for early career researchers and explores how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims. Find out more about peer review in this guide, or read about past peer review workshops.

In 2016, there will be workshops in:

SAGE offices, London: Friday 13th May. See a summary of the day here

Glasgow Caledonian University (date TBC). 

 

Contact Joanne with any queries.

  • Top tip 1: Ask for Evidence. If you’re being sold a product or asked to believe a claim then you deserve to know whether it’s based on evidence – or imagination.

  • Top tip 2: Detox. It’s a marketing myth – our body does it without pricey potions and detox diets.

  • Top tip 3: Superfood. There is no such thing, just foods that are high in some nutrients.

  • Top tip 4: Cleansing. You shouldn’t be trying to cleanse anything other than your skin or hair.

  • Top tip 5: If it sounds too good to be true… it probably is.
