The peer-review process is an important step for improving research papers' quality; however, less is known about the standardized review process. This Mixer is intended to provide a platform for attendees to share their reviewing experiences and ask questions about how to get involved, best review practices and more. Other topics that we hope to discuss include how to balance research and reviewing and what could we learn or get from the reviewing experience. This Mixer is designed to be both an informative session on how peer reviewing can enhance your professional development and an opportunity for you to network with peers also interested in journal reviewing.
Join AOCS for a Midweek Mixer hosted by the AOCS Student Common Interest Group (SCIG) on November 2 at noon (UTC–06/Chicago, USA).
