Celebrating peer review week

peer review week

Peer Review Week (September 28th-October 4th) is an occasion to celebrate this activity that is a keystone of science. We invite scientists to join us for this celebration by publishing on Epistemio a post-publication peer review or rating of one of the scientific publications they have read lately. Publishing a rating takes no more than one minute:

  • Log in or sign up;
  • Search the publication you would like to rate, for example by typing its title;
  • Add the rating;
  • Optionally, add a review that supports your rating.

Ratings and reviews may be either anonymous or signed.

By providing such ratings, you contribute to building peer-review-based metrics of quality and importance of individual publications, eliminating the problems of current indicators indicated, for example, in the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA).
