Free peer review workshop for PhD students – 27 April 2018

Peer review: the nuts and bolts is a free half-day workshop for early career researchers and will explore how peer review works, how to get involved, the challenges to the system, and the role of peer review in helping the public to evaluate research claims.

Should peer review detect plagiarism, bias or fraud? What does peer review do for science and what does the scientific community want it to do for them? Should reviewers remain anonymous? Does it illuminate good ideas or shut them down?

Date: Friday 27th April
Time: 13:30 – 16:30
Venue: SAGE Publishing offices in London.

To apply to attend this workshop, please fill out the application form by 5pm, Friday 13th April.

Cosmopolitan Café – 21 March 2018

Cosmopolitan Café is a social space open to all students of Imperial College which runs twice a term on a Wednesday afternoon. Each event will be themed and offer you a chance to meet other students, learn something new or take part in a fun social activity and enjoy some refreshments. Most events are free of charge.

Wednesday 21st March between 3 – 5pm: Imperial Speakers Club

All students will be required to present to an audience at some point during studies, and this can be a daunting task.

The Imperial Speakers Club gives students the opportunity to practice public speaking in a safe, supportive environment. They will showcase what they do and give you a chance to have a go, if you want to, in very small groups! Refreshments provided.
