Even for people working at academic institutions, the journal peer-review process can be a bit of a black box. In this free webinar, Rick Bonney – Editor-in-Chief of CSA’s journal Citizen Science: Theory & Practice – knocks the walls off of that box to explore the ideals, aspirations, and (sometimes) shortcomings of journal peer review. Whether or not you ever plan to publish, if you’ve ever wanted to know more about how papers make it from idea to manuscript to “print” – including who makes decisions, how publications get paid for (and what’s up with firewalls), and what “peer” means in peer review – this webinar shares insight into that culture, including how that culture is changing (and how CSA is helping).

January 18th from 1-2pm ET
This FREE Webinar is available to all – please register here to confirm your place and receive access instructions.
