This course is designed specifically for Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (AHSS) postdocs and researchers at an early stage of their career with little or no experience of reviewing manuscripts for journals. Focus is on the subjects covered by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Economic and Social Research Council.

The peer-review system helps to ensure the quality of published research. Journal editors are therefore reliant on experts who can deliver independant reviews in a timely fashion. The ability to review manuscripts should be a core skill of every researcher. The following topics are covered in this course:

  • how the peer-review system works
  • about your responsibilities as reviewers
  • what editors expect in a review
  • how to critically evaluate a research manuscript
  • what to include in written comments to editors and authors
  • how long you should spend reviewing a manuscript
  • practical methods for reviewing a manuscript quickly.
