Welcome to the Peer Review Academy

Our courses are meant for thorough study and take our users 20 minutes to complete on average. Very knowledgeable people will be quicker while those who are confronted with the course subject for the first time might take a little longer.

Test yourself using the quiz! You may take the quiz before the course, and don’t worry if you fail your first try. Visit the course and come back to it. You can retake the quiz as often as you need.

And: If 60% or more of your answers are correct, you are awarded a certificate of completion which acknowledges your achievements.
