Workshop for early-career researchers: “How to review in interdisciplinary research”
One major part of the scientific workflow is the publication of scientific results. An essential step on the way to the published item is the peer-review process, in which other scientists evaluate submitted work. Their views, recommendations and critique often strongly influence the decision of whether a submitted item is published or not. We assume that these peers are themselves experts on the topic they are reviewing, and while this is most often true for reviews made on items that lay within a certain discipline, more and more research is done across the boundaries of scientific disciplines, which produces the publication of research items, that may contain parts from vastly different scientific areas.
In addition, many disciplines have their own “styles” when it comes to the review process.
So, what to do as a reviewer when asked to assess a scientific work, that lies only partially within your own area of expertise? This workshop will tackle this question through presenting experts’ views from different scientific areas, a general discussion stage as well as a DIY part in which we will work on a guideline for interdisciplinary peer-reviews.
