Publishing academic work often involves submitting scholarly manuscripts to peer-reviewed journals. A key component of the publishing process involves receiving commentary about your work from peers in your field, and satisfactorily responding to such commentary. Despite it being a core feature of the publishing process, researchers rarely receive formal training on responding to peer review commentary. In this workshop, Dr. Andres De Los Reyes describes evidence-based strategies for responding to peer review commentary, including strategies for how to compose cover letters for responding to such commentary.

Learning Objective 1

Describe an overview of the peer review process.

Learning Objective 2

Identify evidence-based strategies for responding to commentary from peer-reviewed evaluations of your academic work.

Learning Objective 3

Discuss applications of these strategies in examples of previously submitted academic work.
