Peer-review of scientific research articles is the cornerstone of science. Participating as a reviewer is an important way to stay current in your​ research area and to pay back the scientific community. Unfortunately, many reviewers learn peer-review only through experiences with reviews of their own papers and are not formally trained to act as reviewers. This workshop, presented by editors-in-chief of the APS journals, will explain the reviewer's role and responsibilities in the peer-review process and share best practices to help reviewers (and authors) arrive at the best possible outcomes. This workshop will provide the knowledge to improve the peer-review experience both as a reviewer and as an author.
