GENETICS Peer Review Training Workshop
Wednesday, August 22, 12:00 pm – 3:45 pm, Fisher Conference Center (located in the Arillaga Alumni Center)
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.
