Are you interested in making a meaningful contribution to the field and gaining experience as a reviewer for any of ABAI’s journals? Being a reviewer is not only a service to the field, but also helps to develop and sharpen your familiarity with the nuances of the publication process, and stay connected to current developments in the field. ABAI’s journal editors are interested in broadening the base of reviewers who serve on their editorial boards and who serve as guest reviewers. This panel of editors will highlight the important implications of being a reviewer by discussing the critical features of this role. This will include a set of guidance on how to write constructive, thorough, and complete reviews. In many ways, the quality of peer review impacts the reputation, and success of academic journals.
