Cambridge University Press celebrates Peer Review Week 2018

Cambridge University Press is delighted to announce its participation once again in Peer Review Week – a global event held annually to recognize and highlight the essential work peer reviewers do in maintaining scientific quality. Throughout this week, Cambridge will be acknowledging the time and effort required for peer review and the value diversity adds to the process. 

Taking place 10-15 September, activities will be held online and in-person across the world to bring attention to this year’s theme, diversity and inclusion, and to salute peer reviewers for the critical work they do in developing exceptional scholarly communication.

In a video message to launch the week’s festivities, Press Managing Director for Academic, Mandy Hill, spoke on the importance of having a broad pool of reviewers to ensure the evaluation being done is rigorous and fair, as well as the role it plays in encouraging more diversity across all areas of scholarly publishing.

This week, Senior Vice President of Academic Publishing, Americas, Brigitte Shull, will participate in a webinar presented by ORCID to demonstrate the innovative ways the blockchain can be utilized in the peer review process.

Author Services Manager Emily Marchant will also be taking part in a panel discussion held by American Journal Experts to discuss how quality is upheld with the rise of new technologies.

Cambridge has also joined Publons to support their third annual Peer Review Awards, celebrating reviewers who play a critical role in ensuring the integrity of published research.

Other activities to celebrate Peer Review Week 2018 include the introduction of a centralized collection of valuable information for peer reviewers, blogs throughout the week on topics like how editors can best assess diversity in their own peer review process and the impact of mentoring on early career researchers, and more.

Join Cambridge University Press throughout the week in supporting the work of peer reviewers through our Facebook and Twitter pages.
