We’re so excited that you’ve pursued this program to advance your skills in peer review. The content of this course is organized into lessons that are intended to be navigated from top to bottom. Each lesson contains a video and other resources.
This program can be completed as an individual or as a group. Consider teaming up with others to walk through the content in a sequence so that the group can come together to discuss what you’ve learned. As you approach the practice peer reviews, meet to discuss which practice manuscript you’d like to review and how you’d like to come together to discuss and compare to other peer reviews.
