Peer Review Week (PRW) is now headed toward its 5th Anniversary! This time, PRW19 is coming up with new theme of “Quality in Peer Review” to be celebrated globally from 16 to 20 September, 2019.
The Asian Council of Science Editors supports the ideology of Peer Review Week ensuring the qualitative preservation and integrity of scholarly research. Connecting the peers of publishing industry and scientific research at one platform of discussion is necessary to emphasize the role of Peer Review and Reviewers in scholarly communications, as well as to highlight the latest innovation and applications of its field.
This year celebrating the Peer Review Week in Asia, the Asian Council of Science Editors invites all its Members, Ambassadors and Advisory Cabinet Members for open comments, views, opinions, as well as answers to the following possible questions to contribute a little to “Peer Review Week 2019”
