    Webinar: How to Peer Review Papers Effectively

    Speakers: Professor Gloria Barczak (Northeastern University) and Professor Abbie Griffin (University of Utah)

    Peer reviewing is an essential component of the academic research process. As noted by Tsang (2013), "A competent, well-crafted review provides constructive comments that help authors strengthen their paper, regardless of whether the paper is eventually accepted for publication" (Tsang, 2013, p. 168).  Unfortunately, most PhD students and junior faculty have not received formal training in how to do an effective peer review: they learn by the trial and error of doing or by working with their advisor, who is likely to be an experienced reviewer, though not necessarily a good one (Tsang and Frey, 2007; Smith, 2006). This webinar will provide an overview of what constitutes a high-quality review, the myriad benefits of reviewing, the expectations (5 R's) of high-quality reviewers, and a reviewing template.

    Time: Wednesday, 10th of March at 10am (U.S. Eastern) / 3pm (GMT) / 8.30pm (New Delhi). This webinar is scheduled for 90 minutes with plenty of opportunity for Q&A.

    Recommended reading: Griffin, A and Barczak, G (2020) "Effective Reviewing for Conceptual Journal Submissions", AMS Review, 10:36-48.
