Are you a good reviewer?
To give PhD students and PostDocs advice on how to write a good review, CAnMove organised a workshop on 23 November to address questions like ‘Why do we need to review? How to write a good review? What does an editor want? What does it need to be constructive for both authors and editors?’
That such advice is much appreciated was evident by the high demand for this course. After announcing the course, it took just minutes until it was fully booked. 19 participants (8 from CAnMove, 11 from the rest of the department) followed the lectures and exercise with great interest. Thomas Alerstam and Jan-Åke Nilsson, both CAnMove members and Editors-in-Chief of the Journal of Avian Biology, kindly shared their experience and advice with the course participants.
All participants highly appreciated the course and found it very useful, and we are considering to repeat the workshop in due time.
