IASLC Reviewer Workshop

Improving Reviewer Performance.
Covers of JTO CRR and JPO

While peer review is critical to academic publishing and research, formal training opportunities for young physicians and physician-scientists are limited. In an effort to improve reviewer performance and quality of manuscript reviews, the IASLC and JTO/JTO CRR will conduct a formalized workshop to train reviewers, in particular, to be able to make judgements on impact of manuscripts, which is the most difficult part of the review process.
