2017 AMS Annual Meeting Publications Workshop: The Importance of Peer Reviewers: Best Practices and Stories from the Inside

Wednesday, 25 January 2017, 12:15–1:15 P.M.; Room 604
view in conference program

The Publications Workshop this year will be focused on the importance of reviewing. Why is this such a critical part of the publication process? How does being part of the peer-review process help graduate students and early-career scientists advance their careers? What exactly are editors looking for when requesting a review? What are the ethical standards reviewers should be aware of?

Monthly Weather Review Chief Editor Dave Schultz (and author of Eloquent Science: A Practical Guide to Becoming a Better Writer, Speaker, and Atmospheric Scientist), as well as other AMS journal editors, will cover those topics and more in this workshop that should be of interest to all parties involved in producing, publishing, and communicating about scientific research. A limited number of fresh baked cookies will be provided.
