OverviewJoin us for this exciting and participatory, special session of the SACME Virtual Journal Club. We will be focusing on one of the key areas of scholarship in our field – peer review.
The peer-review process requires the dedication and work of volunteers, who contribute considerable time and effort. While reviewers’ motivation to participate in the peer-review process may be uniquely individual, there are numerous benefits to reviewing abstracts or manuscripts, far outweighing the perceived burden of the work required. In addition, thoughtful and constructive feedback to authors can provide guidance to enhance their current work and future writings. Lastly, meeting planners and journal editors rely on the peer review process to identify quality scholarly contributions.
This session will summarize the peer review process and highlight the benefits to all involved. Participants will work together improving an example of a “bad” review. Practical tips will be provided for reviewers to make the most of their experience in a meaningful, productive and convenient manner.
Special attention will be paid to the review of SACME proposals for the 2020 meeting.
