This year’s Peer Review Week, an annual event led by academic publishers, institutions, societies, and researchers, will be dedicated to the theme “Identity in Peer Review.” During the week of September 20-24, 2021, participating organizations will organize virtual events and activities to highlight the role of personal and social identity in peer review and ways the scholarly community can foster more diverse, equitable, and inclusive peer review practices.

Call for Sponsors


Abstracts summarizing original, high-quality research of the processes used by researchers, authors, editors, peer reviewers, publishers, funders, universities, and any other stakeholders to improve the conduct, reporting, quality, integrity, and dissemination of scientific research are welcome.

The Congress program will be determined by abstracts submitted by researchers, representing the interests and work of their scientific communities, with priority given to novel, data-driven studies.

New ideas and rigorous evaluations of both old and new processes are encouraged.

Interest continues in studies of bias and how biases can be identified and managed.
