Scholars Commons Workshops Fall 2017

This workshop will provide a practical, behind-the-scenes look at scholarly peer-review, addressing the responsibilities of all of its participants—authors, editors, and reviewers. Peer review for scholarly journals and scholarly books will be discussed. Strategies for getting the most out of a peer-reviewer’s report, as well as for being a effective peer-reviewer, are on the agenda for this session. Co-presenters are an experienced journal and book series editor and a university press acquisitions editor. The session is open to all and will be of particular value to graduate students and postdoctoral scholars.

Presented by Jason Baird Jackson, Director of the Mathers Museum of World Cultures and Professor of Folklore and Anthropology, and Jennika Baines, IU Press
