eLife and PREreview Partner With African Organizations to Train Peer Reviewers

eLife and PREreview joined forces with AfricaArXiv, Eider Africa, and the Training Centre in Communication (TCC Africa) to create a peer-review training course for early-career and mid-career researchers in Africa. According to eLife, “The course aims to raise awareness around preprints and foster the participation of African researchers in peer review, especially the open review of preprints.” It features guided learning to help them build a profile as a constructive peer reviewer. eLife notes, “To ensure the scalability and maximise the impact of the course, the organisers will introduce a ‘train the trainer’ model, where the first cohort of researchers will be recruited to the workshop and given the opportunity to learn how to instruct others in peer review. The participants will also be invited to help co-create the training materials, adapt these resources to their needs and contexts, and deliver the workshop to their own research communities.”
