University Writing Program Workshop Series

Peer Review: Reading Academic Papers for Professional Journals


This workshop will introduce scholars to the practice of peer review in three broad academic areas: physical sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Participants will learn about the review criteria typical of professional journals and the types of commentary most useful for authors. Working with examples from the Journal of Undergraduate Research, participants will qualify to act as readers for JUR and, after serving in that capacity, will be listed as JUR Editorial Board Members.
