On the 17th September at the Glasgow Caledonian University, the Sense About Science Nuts and Bolts workshop is once again taking place. The free, half-day event will address how early career researchers can get the most out of the peer review process. It will explore how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims. Reviews from the last workshop can be found here.
Sense About Science aims to bridge the gap between practical science experiments and research to better understand the accuracy of scientific claims. As a keen advocate and supporter of high quality research and its global dissemination, SAGE are once again delighted to be sponsoring these workshops. Providing a great platform in which to discuss key issues facing the industry and practitioners within this, these workshops are a vital part of the conversation, not only ensuring that we engage with the challenges, but that we better understand them. As a community, by playing an active part of these discussions, we can ensure that publication processes continue to grow and develop as new researchers and academics enter the field.
