A table with chairs

ECIS 2023 workshops aim to:

  • Encourage and build communities of interest among scholars – from students to emeritus.
  • Provide a platform to share knowledge and foster conversation on a shared interest.
  • Allow colleagues – both junior and senior – to network and engage with others who share similar interests.
  • Provide an opportunity to generate ideas, challenge assumptions, think differently, inspire action and form new partnerships.
  • Allow for feedback and early reactions from the community on ongoing projects or emerging topics.

Workshop attendees and organizers must pay the ECIS2023 workshop registration fee. If workshop attendees would also like to attend the main ECIS conference, they must also pay the conference registration fee. Workshop registrations and payments will be made via the Conference registration system, and costs to the facilities will thus be taken care of by the local ECIS organizers. Notably, local organizers may require that all workshops adhere to specific requirements regarding the general timetable, registration, and catering.

Please note that the workshop's time and/or location might be adjusted based on the number of submissions received and that workshops may be canceled due to a lack of submissions or registrations at the early registration deadline.

How to be an effective reviewer: A workshop

Introduce PhD students and junior faculty to the practices associated with being an accomplished, constructive and respected reviewer

Date and time: Fri, 30 Jun 2023 @ 15:00 - 18:00 CEST

This workshop will introduce PhD students and early career researchers to the practices associated with being an accomplished, constructive and respected reviewer. Effective reviewers learn from the review process and, as a result, can see how to improve their own publications. Good reviewers are also recognised by the community and are often offered opportunities that enhance their academic profile, including journal editorial positions and conference track positions. The workshop will be interactive. Refreshments will be provided.

Workshop attendees will:

  • develop an understanding of the life cycle of a review from a journal's perspective by following a paper through the review process and making a decision based on real reviews
  • recognise the range of ethical issues that can be faced by reviewers
  • appreciate how reviews can help develop papers at different stages of the review process
  • understand the differences in review process across journals

Attendees at previous versions of the workshop have spoken highly of the event. Over 120 students and junior faculty have attended the workshops since 2016. They have said:

"a very insightful and useful session"

"it was invaluable"

"thanks for the great workshop"

"very kindly and carefully prepared workshop. I appreciate the lecture and also the following up activities that letting us sharing the reviews and positioning ourselves as the review managers. That helps me a lot to have a better understanding of a more complete review process than before. After I go back, definitely will review the whole package and reflect on that. Also thanks for many of the hands-on knowledge shared at the workshop."

"The workshop is absolutely helpful"

"I found the workshop to be extremely insightful. I am sure I will use what I learnt time and again"

"I would love to recommend it to other people. Good structure, good materials, and also good lecturer who explains well ;) great opportunities to learn how to improve our own paper better as well."
