The courses on the Web of Science Academy platform are aimed at and designed for early career researchers that have already started publishing their research, such as PhD students and postdocs. But others might find it of value too, such as more senior researchers that would like to brush up on their peer review skills.

We do not recommend the course for undergraduate or masters students because the skills to critique published research usually requires some years of both doing and publishing research in order to pick apart methodology, analysis and the discussion of a peer.
