How to Survive Peer Review in Social Sciences and Humanities

Session Agenda

Peer review is a critical step in the publication cycle ensuring the quality and the integrity of the literature. Researchers are often intrigued to know what happens after they have successfully submitted their article or book manuscript. In our previous webinar, we shared an overview of the complete publication journey of a researcher from Humanities and Social Sciences (HSS). This webinar aims to provide an insight into the peer review process followed by authentic journals and publishers for assessing the quality of the work submitted and ensuring the publication of reliable data. It will also help researchers in avoiding journal rejection by sharing practical tips for understanding the reviewer’s comment and responding to them effectively.

Researchers will learn:

  • Overview of the peer review process and different models adopted by journals
  • How peer review in HSS is different from STEM?
  • Understanding reviewer’s comments and responding to them appropriately
  • Expert tips to handle manuscript rejections
