Peer Review Week at UND Sept. 19-22

Come celebrate Peer Review Week, Sept. 19-22, with a panel of UND faculty members and a workshop open to all!

Peer Review Week is an annual scholarly communication event celebrating the value of peer review. This year at UND, the Chester Fritz and School of Medicine and Health Sciences Libraries are partnering to bring you two cross-campus events focused on this year’s theme of “Research Integrity: Creating and supporting trust in research.”

Our first event, held at 11 a.m. on Sept. 20, features a panel of faculty from across the University, and will focus on the ethics of peer review and best practices for guiding students through a sometimes murky publication process.
