Peer review is central to how academics communicate our findings to each other. Today we dig in to some of the details of what it is and how it works. How did peer review become a part of academia in the first place? What are some common things about peer review that early-career researchers don't know? What should you do when you disagree with an editor or reviewers? Should you sign your reviews? Plus, a letter writer asks us if it's weird to keep living your life by unreplicable findings.
