GENETICS Peer Review Training Workshop

Thursday, June 20, 2:00 p.m.–6:00 p.m.

This workshop will provide an introduction to peer reviewing for early career researchers, including graduate students. The workshop will cover best practices and a mock review. Becoming a better reviewer will help you to become a better author and to hone some of the skills central to scientific success, including critical thinking, evaluating research, providing helpful feedback, and understanding the mindset and expectations of peer reviewers and editors.

Advance registration required.

Fee: $80. Limited attendance.

Publishing Q&A

Sunday, June 23, 1:00 p.m.–2:30 p.m.

Sponsored by the Journals GENETICS and G3

Lost in publication? Not ready to publish yet, but curious about the peer-review process? Students and postdocs are invited to join journal editors, including editors and editorial staff from the GSA journals GENETICS and G3: Genes|Genomes|Genetics, over a light lunch to discuss the ins-and-outs of getting your articles published. All questions welcome!

Advance registration required.

Fee: $15. Limited attendance.
