Publication Ethics Resources for Editors

Tuesday, Feb. 5, 2019 | 2:30 – 3:30 p.m. Eastern | Register

About the Webinar

As the number of published articles continues to increase each year, so do the number of fraudulent studies. In fact, the number of retractions in the biomedical literature increased from 467 in 2013 to 684 in 2015 (source: https://www.vox.com/2016/3/24/11299102/scientific-retractions-are-on-the-rise). Fortunately, there are tools available for editors (and reviewers) to help them handle ethically questionable manuscripts at the time of submission or post publication. This webinar provides an overview of two free resources available to editors (and reviewers) to help handle publishing ethics allegations - the Committee on Publishing Ethics (COPE) and the Publishing Ethics Resource Kit (PERK).

This webinar is sponsored by the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

Using Mentored Peer Review of Journal Articles as a Strategy for Graduate Student Development

Thursday, March 7, 2019 | 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern | Register

About the Webinar

Training of graduate students to be future scholars often focuses on research design, data collection and interpretation, but commonly the translation of that knowledge to critical appraisal is less developed. The peer review process has been developed to provide a formal structure to evaluate research before it is widely disseminated. The skills needed to translate research training into meaningful and effective peer reviews need to be fostered during training of graduate students. The presenters will discuss a model of peer review training that guides masters and doctoral students through the critical appraisal process to develop a respectful and thorough review of a manuscript submission. This process includes the ability for students to review the anonymous submission independently. After independent reviews are complete, a meeting is held to discuss the strengths and limitations of the paper, as well as the broader contribution to the science.
