African Perspectives On Peer Review: A Roundtable Discussion

AfricArXiv, Eider Africa, TCC Africa, and PREreview are pleased to host a 60-minute long roundtable discussion, bringing African perspectives to the global conversation around this years’ Peer Review Week’s theme, “Identity in Peer Review”.
