Peer review – do we need gradual improvements or a revolution?

ESOF Manchester 2016 adapted from Julia Wilson

How editors conduct peer review, how this process is evolving and whether we can trust the new players entering the field, the responsibilities of reviewers and how to recognize and reward all the effort put in to peer review. These were only some of the topics discussed by the panel and the audience of the “Peer review – the nuts and bolts” session at the EuroScience Open Forum (ESOF) in Manchester, UK on Sunday 24 July.
