About this Webinar

Peer review developed in the 20th Century to increase the authenticity of published material. Furthermore, after World War II, the federal government increased funding for research to ensure the country’s safety and health. Peer review became an essential ingredient for ensuring the quality of funded research. During the COVID-19 pandemic, an abundance of papers have been published to claim the distinction of contributing to the disease’s treatment as well as to acquire funding and/or profits. This webinar will discuss the ethical responsibilities of researchers publishing data critical for the safety and well-being of the people around the world.

We also recommend our Communicating Research Findings course for effective practices, guidelines, and strategies for communicating and presenting your research.
