If you were lucky enough to be at the International Society of Managing and Technical Editors 2017 European Conference back in November, then you may have had the opportunity to take a look at “The Peer Review Game” created by Tom Gaston.
We loved this fantastically innovative (not to mention fun) way of looking at peer review; the game not only explains the process and what we hope to achieve with it, but looks at tools and initiatives we can employ to help improve it such as ORCID and Publons.
Here’s Tom to tell you all about it:
If you haven’t had a chance to try out “The Peer Review Game” yet, then make sure you sign up to our mailing list because we have a little games evening planned!
Tom has very kindly agreed to bring “The Peer Review Game” along to our next ISMTE Local Group Meeting and tell us a bit more about the game and how it came into being. The meeting will be held in Café Rouge, Oxford on 1-Feb-2018 at 7pm. Non-members are welcome, and the event will be free to attend – we can’t wait!
