In Conversation with Editorial Board Members

Celebrating Peer Review Week 2023’s theme, Peer Review and the Future of Publishing.

With the rise of generative AI, preprints, and other changes to the publishing industry, it can feel like a lot is changing in the world of scholarly communication. In the spirit of the Peer Review Week 2023 theme, Peer Review and the Future of Publishing, we invite you to join us for a special virtual event: Editorial Board Members Tackle Peer Review & The Future of Publishing, September 29th from noon to 1pm PST.

Have you ever struggled to address the variety of feedback between the same cohort of peer reviewers? Are you curious to know how peer review might change with the rise of preprints? In honor of Peer Review Week 2023, join Lane Library in attending our panel session with editorial board members from a variety of Biomedical Journals to discuss peer review and the future of publishing. Upon registering, you’ll have the opportunity to submit questions to the editorial board panel which will be answered live during the event.
