Peer review - the evaluation of scientific, academic, or professional work by others working in the same field - is at the heart of scholarly communications. Whether evaluating a journal article for publication, a paper to be presented at a conference, a faculty member for promotion, or a grant proposal, a rigorous peer review process helps ensure that a good decision is made.
To honor and celebrate peer review, a small group of organizations is planning a week of activities, events, and publications. Peer Review Week 2015 will run from Monday 28 September to Friday 2 October, and will include a series of blog posts and interviews, a social media campaign (#peerrevwk15), a webinar on trust and transparency in peer review, and more.
