Peer Review Week (PRW) is an annual, week-long, global event celebrating the role of peer review in maintaining high-quality research publications and exploring how peer review can address different issues within the academic and publishing communities. This initiative attracts individuals, institutions, and organisations who value the significant role that peer review plays in upholding high research standards.

This year’s Peer Review Week is about identity. The purpose of this year’s initiative is to explore how peer review can influence inclusion in scientific and scholarly communities. Discussions and events will examine the role of peer reviewers, publishers and other academic bodies in amplifying the voices of different researchers to ensure equitability and diversity.
