Writing a Peer Review: ThinkWrite
Professional Development Programme

Participants: This course is open to all research staff.

Pre-requisites: None

The aim of this workshop is to inform participants of the procedures, methods and constraints of writing a peer review. By taking part in this course researchers will discover new ways in which to structure and write a review.

Anticipated learning outcomes:
By the end of this session, you will have a fuller understanding of:

  • the communication process involved in publishing academic papers
  • the various roles that peer reviewers can be expected to fulfil
  • the editors needs and constraints, and how this can influence a reviewer's task
  • your ability to produce a worthwhile review

Participants should bring copies of three or four papers that have been published in a journal for which they think they could be asked to write a peer review. Please make sure that you have recently read at least one of these papers.

Please look on that journal's website and bring along (printed or on screen):

  • any instructions to peer reviewers
  • any instructions to authors
