PREreview Provides Update on Training Peer Reviewers in Africa
Daniela Saderi writes the following in “Open Peer Reviewers in Africa: A Train-of-Trainer Program Pilot Recap” for PREreview:
Over the past 18 months, AfricArXiv, Eider Africa, eLife, PREreview, and the Training Centre in Communication Africa (TCC Africa) have collaborated to develop a peer-review training workshop called Open Peer Reviewers in Africa, tailored to the region-specific context of African researchers.
Together we co-created and openly shared tools and strategies for scholarly literature evaluation, and trained the first cohort of 11 African researchers. With this blog post we aim to summarize the fruits of this collaboration, and highlight the profile and work of the 5 trainees who have moved on to be open peer review trainers themselves.
For more information, read the blog post.
