Writing peer reviews is excellent way for you to perform disciplinary service while exposing yourself to cutting edge research. Moreover, writing peer reviews provides you with the opportunity to learn how to fairly and accurately assess and critique the writing of scholars in your discipline. Finally, the peer review process provides you with an opportunity to better understand the genre- and stylistic-conventions that underlie writing in your discipline. This workshop will cover the nuts and bolts of how to write a peer review that is thorough, fair, and clear. It will also introduce you to various types of peer review (e.g., double blind, single blind) and provide information about how to begin getting involved in the peer review process.
