Making the right call together: standardisation opportunity for conference abstract reviewers

Activity: Invited talk/public lecture/debate


This online session is aimed at those who:

are new to peer review BERA conference abstracts
would like to peer review for the BERA conference in future
are more experienced
but would like the reassurance of a collaboration opportunity.

We will be discussing three anonymised example conference abstracts (shared beforehand) and discussing as a group the categories we award points for, the points we would award these examples and then reaching consensus about each one.

The aim of the session is to explore different viewpoints, gain deeper understanding of what makes a balanced peer review judgement and a good conference abstract, and to bring collaboration to the peer review process, which can be a daunting task for new reviewers.

All welcome, engagement with the three abstracts before the event is vital (approx. 30 mins pre-reading/review) as we will not have reading time during the event.
