Peer Review Week runs from September 16 to 20, This year's theme is “Quality in Peer Review.” Peer Review Week celebrates the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality.

Researchers’ experiences

Information Specialist Chantal Hukkelhoven has written a blog for the Peer Review Week. In her blog WUR researchers tell you about their experiences with Publons – a platform that helps you to record and showcase your peer-reviewing activities.

Global state of Peer Review

The blog also describes interesting facts about the state of peer review. How much time do your colleagues around the globe spend on their peer reviews? What do they consider important for the review's efficacy?

You can find the answers in this blog. More information on how to showcase your peer-reviewing contributions is presented in a former blog.
