Reviewer Training

Interested in improving your peer review skills? Not sure where to start when reviewing a manuscript? Need a structure for helping your own trainees learn peer review?

SLB is proud to offer its members a free, innovative peer-reviewing training course. In this course, you will learn from peer review experts and practice those skills in a simulated journal environment. Work at your own pace via asynchronous presentations. After completing the asynchronous portion, you will:

  • Accurately and fairly assess manuscripts
  • Write effective reviews
  • Identify conflicts of interest and bias

These skills will be refined and extended in the second part of the course, where you will work with a mentor-editor to review manuscripts in a simulated journal environment. Upon completion, participants receive a certificate from SLB.  Register below to get started with the asynchronous modules and begin learning how to be a great reviewer today!

If you would like to serve as a mentor, please contact us.
