Celebrate Peer Review Week 2022 with KSL!

Kelvin Smith Library recognizes and supports our researchers on campus and will be hosting activities that highlight the ways in which peer review contributes to and reinforces trust in scholarship. This year's theme, "Research Integrity: Creating and supporting trust in research" has inspired two events to celebrate the essential role that peer review plays in maintaining research quality.

Scroll to register and see details on one virtual, and one in-person activity with light refreshments.

Peer Review Week is a community-led yearly global event that brings together individuals, institutions, and organizations committed to sharing the central message that quality peer review in whatever shape or form it may take is critical to scholarly communication.

To emphasize the central role peer review plays in scholarly communication
To showcase the work of editors and reviewers
To share research and advance best practices
To highlight the latest peer review innovations and applications

We hope to see you at one or both of Kelvin Smith Library's scheduled activities for Peer Review Week 2022!

Please contact Daniela Solomon ( for any questions or more details.

In-Person: The Dilemma Game

Join us for The Dilemma Game and light refreshments in celebration of Peer Review Week!

Researchers at all levels face dilemmas while conducting and publishing their research - Can I exclude particular observations from my research? Can I use exactly the same data set for multiple papers? Should I agree on a colleague being a co-author on a paper to which she has not made a significant contribution? - and more.

Join us to play the Dilemma Game: Professionalism and Integrity in Research created by a team at Erasmus University (Rotterdam) to stimulate awareness of integrity and professionalism in research. The game lets participants consider, choose and defend (and possibly reconsider) alternative courses of action regarding a realistic dilemma related to professionalism and integrity in research.

It is important to note that due to the complexity of integrity-related dilemmas, there is no winning or losing in this game. Rather, by defending and discussing these choices in the context of a critical dialogue, the game aims to support researchers in further developing their moral compass.

Please contact Daniela Solomon ( for any questions or more details.

We hope to see you there!

For those who cannot register, explore the free online version of the Dilemma Game available as an app. More details are available at

Webinar: The Peer Review Process

Join us for KSL's first Peer Review Week activity!

New and experienced authors alike will benefit from this session's exploration of peer review presented by Tara Duggan and Ruth Wolfish from IEEE. You will gain insight into why peer review is important, how it works, what reviewers are looking for when they evaluate an article, and how you can respond to reviewers' comments effectively. We'll also discuss how and why to become a reviewer yourself, including ideas to keep in mind as you conduct a review.
