feedback
Feedback

From a student:

…I think the discussions that took place in these workshops were really useful in that they brought out a lot of issues I had never thought of before such as the appropriate use of information from a paper that you have been sent for peer review. I’m happy that I got to discuss some of these issues early in my graduate career, rather than learning them on the fly and making mistakes that could be damaging to my career.

From a faculty member:

In addition to providing a needed venue to discuss varied aspects of professional ethics, the sessions have turned out to be an ideal format for frank discussions about tradecraft, finding appropriate grants, dealing with recalcitrant reviewers or editors, and identifying the subtle differences among journals.
