Welding in the World (WitW) is a big part of the ‘being seen’ at an international level for a young researcher. You get your name out there and get feedback from colleagues through the reviewing process. I think it is very important that young people get involved in that early. After my PhD, I was immediately encouraged to also ‘see the other side’ of the process, so I am serving as principal reviewer now. Again, this is about staying in touch with innovations and people in the field and at the same time improving my own research work and publishing.
