It’s been quiet around here for summer while I took two months off to drive around the country to visit friends and family I had not seen in years because of the pandemic. But I’m back at it and have plenty more stories to share with you. But before then, ACRL is hosting a webcast for #peerreviewweek21. The theme, Identity in Peer review, takes up a few chapters of Stories of Open, so it’s a perfect fit! (Need to read the OA version of the book? Find it at the bottom of the book’s description on the ALA Store.) While I, of course, think everyone should read the whole book, if you are most interested in identities, I recommend chapters: 4 – Roles of Peer Review; 5 – Dualities and Multiplicities in Peer Review; 9 – I Just Feel Like This Makes Sense to Me.
Opening Peer Review in LIS
September 21, 2021 | 1:00-2:00pm CT
What does it mean to peer review in library and information science? What does it mean to be reviewed? How do our professional identities intersect with this vital research and publishing role? And what does it mean when peer review is opened to reveal these identities? In celebration of Peer Review Week 2021, this free webcast with Emily Ford will share insights into peer review in LIS as discussed in Stories of Open: Opening Peer Review through Narrative Inquiry, a newly published book from ACRL.
