 The Eighth International Congress on Peer Review and Scientific Publication follows the previous 7 highly successful Peer Review Congresses that are held once every 4 years. Our aim is to encourage research into the quality and credibility of peer review and scientific publication, to establish the evidence base on which scientists can improve the conduct, reporting, and dissemination of scientific research.

As before, there will be 3 days of presentations of new research on peer review and all aspects of scientific publishing, including plenary and poster sessions. We look forward to your participation in the lively discussions that follow each presentation and the interactions during poster sessions. Registration for the Peer Review Congress will open in early 2017.

If you have questions, please contact us at jama-peer@jamanetwork.org.
