Peer Review and Its Importance in Research

Peer review is an important aspect in assessing a researcher’s scholarly work by an independent researcher or a colleague. In general, a peer reviewer evaluates the scholarly work in depth and from a different angle, provides an independent assessment, finds any loophole or deficiencies, and helps with constructive criticisms so that research can be further improved and advanced. This is a very important and common practice in considering research publication in journals, grant funding, scholarships, and others. In this workshop, panel members Zui Pan (Nursing & Health Innovation), Suvra Pal (Mathematics), and Weidong Zhou (Electrical Engineering) will discuss different aspects of peer review in research and its importance in graduate education.
