Peer Review Week this year will be focused on exploring diversity and inclusion within peer review

Sep 11, 2018

OAK RIDGE, Tenn.—The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) understands the importance of peer review in the scientific community. We support the U.S. Department of Energy and other agencies in their mission to determine the quality and accuracy of research through every step of the peer review process. As scientists and peer reviewers work to shape the world of science, our peer review experts focus on the management of peer review facilitation and execution.
