Introduction to Peer Reviewing for Psychiatric Journals

Event Information

Join us in London on 14 May for a full day's workshop on Peer Reviewing for Psychiatric Journals. 

This workshop will be an excellent opportunity to learn the basics and principles of peer reviewing from experienced peer reviewers and high profile researchers in psychiatry.

You will also be given the opportunity to share and discuss your own methods, techniques and ideas throughout the day as the workshop will follow a collaborative and interactive approach.

You do not need any previous reviewer experience to attend. This course is suitable for senior trainees and consultants, so it would be fantastic to see you there. Please do also share this with any colleagues you know would be interested in attending.
