Learning to write and respond to reviewers' comments are vital skills for early career researchers to master if they wish to become established scientists. However, these skills are often neglected, forcing researchers to learn them by trial and error.


By learning to address reviewers' comments, young researchers not only
increase their chances of getting published but also learn to think critically about their own research. Equally, by becoming better reviewers, researchers can raise their profiles with journal editors and enhance their academic reputation.


This workshop guides you through the peer review process using a practical approach that explores the roles of the author, the reviewer and the editor. Following the workshop, as an author you will be able to engage the interest of the journal editor with a cover letter. You will also be skilled in responding comprehensively and courteously to reviewers' comments. As a future reviewer, you will know how to critically evaluate a research article and to phrase criticism in a constructive review that benefits the scientific process.
