"The thesis is no longer enough," he said.

"Universities and other employers are looking for graduates with higher research degrees who can explain their ideas in clear and interesting ways to a range of audiences."

He added that he hopes to attract new writers to produce paid reviews on varied topics under the guidance of ABR's editorial team.

After the master class, participants had the opportunity to follow up their ideas about possible reviews with Peter in one-to-one conversations.
