Members of Underrepresented Groups: Reviewers for Journal Manuscripts Wanted
If you are interested in reviewing manuscripts for APA Journals, the APA Publications and Communications (P&C) Board would like to invite you to participate. Manuscript reviewers are vital to the publication process. As a reviewer, you would gain valuable experience in publishing. The P&C Board is particularly interested in encouraging members of underrepresented groups to participate more in this process.
If you are interested in reviewing manuscripts, please write to Leslie Cameron. Please note the following important points: To be selected as a reviewer, you must have published articles in peer-reviewed journals. The experience of publishing provides a reviewer with the basis for preparing a thorough, objective review. To select the appropriate reviewers for each manuscript, the editor needs detailed information. Please include your vita with your letter. In your letter, please identify which APA journal you are interested in and describe your area of expertise. Be as specific as possible. For example, 'social psychology' is not sufficient-- you would need to specify 'social cognition' or 'attitude change' as well.
Reviewing a manuscript takes time. If you are selected to review a manuscript, please be prepared to invest the necessary time to evaluate the manuscript thoroughly.
