Effective Peer Reviewing – a workshop for newer researchers.

Wednesday 24th April 2013

Professor Rosemary Deem


Peer review is fundamental to academia and research and is crucial to progressing knowledge within our community, yet it is relatively rare for peer review to  be taught to newer researchers.   We just tend to assume that people will pick it up as they go along.

This workshop will provide you with an understanding of how peer review works and will highlight some of the issues and debates about the peer-review process as well as giving you practical experience in conducting peer review.

 The aims of this workshop are:

·         To discuss why peer review matters

·         To consider why peer review is important in journal and grant refereeing

·         To develop your skills in conducting peer review


Rosemary Deem is Professor of Higher Education Management and Vice Principal (Education) at Royal Holloway, University of London, UK.   She has also worked at Bristol, Lancaster and the Open Universities and North Staffordshire Polytechnic.  Her recent work has focused on public service leadership and management, new managerialism, equality in educational contexts and the purposes of universities. She is a former Chair of both SRHE Research Committee and Publications Committee and has been a member of three RAE Education Sub-panels and chaired an ESRC task group on peer review in 2003.
