Apologies for any cross-postings


The International Conference on Performance Measurement in Libraries (LibPMC) is held every two years. In between the conference’s Community Building Team conducts outreach activities to those working in all libraries. On February 28th, we are offering a free webinar discussing “Why Should You be a Peer Reviewer?: Roles, Responsibilities, and Perks.”

              The webinar panel includes four editors of peer-reviewed journals representing publications in four countries (Canada, Nigeria, Poland, and United States). Panelist bios are provided below with links to their respective journals on the flyer. While the webinar is focuses on peer reviewing for library journals, the principles and discussion should benefit anyone interested in becoming a peer reviewer.

              We invite you to register for this free webinar using the links on the attached flyer. We ask you to share this information with colleagues who may have an interest in becoming or better understanding the roles, responsibilities, and benefits of being a peer reviewer.
