Sense About Science will hold two workshops on Peer Review in 2015 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.
