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”. Together with a multidisciplinary panel of African editors, reviewers and early-career researchers, we will explore the shifting identities of researchers in the African continent, from the dominant perspective that sees them as consumers of knowledge produced in other contexts to researchers who are actively engaged in scholarly peer review.
