Peer Review Week is a global event celebrating the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining scientific quality. Scheduled for September 11-17, 2017 in Chicago, the theme is transparency in peer review.

One of the more interesting events that will kick off this year’s celebrations is a panel session at 5:30 p.m. on September 12. Titled Under the Microscope: Transparency in Peer Review, it will be chaired by Alice Meadows, Director of Community Engagement & Support for ORCID. The panel will be open for all Peer Review Congress attendees to join in person, as well as being live-streamed and recorded so others can also participate. This important information was brought to us by The Scholarly Kitchen in their article, “What Does Transparent Peer Review Mean and Why is it Important?

This annual event brings together individuals, institutions, and organizations committed to sharing the central message that good peer review, whatever shape or form it might take, is critical to scholarly communications.
