Call for Reviewers – SAGSA Journal

SAGSA is very happy to announce that we will be starting up a student-run, peer-reviewed journal this year! For now, we will be limiting publications to papers given at this year’s SAGSA Conference, Intersections / Convergences, but we intend to expand the journal’s scope in future years.

As the journal will be peer-reviewed, we are looking for reviewers (this could be you!). Reviewing submissions will give you valuable experience that looks great on a CV and will also help you refine your own writing.

We are looking for a few students with a strong understanding of academic review/critique and a solid knowledge of proper grammar, punctuation and syntax. We will be undertaking a double-blind peer-review process. Editors will be provided with a few papers, 3-5, to review for grammar, syntax and clarity of argument; comprehensive review guidelines will be provided to each editor. The time requirements will be minimal. Reviewers will have a week and a half for the process and each paper should only take an hour to an hour and a half to review. Your name will also be included in the final publication as a contributor.

If you are interested please send an email to and include ‘Associate Editor’ in the subject line. In the body of the email please also indicate areas which you feel strongest in reviewing; such as, theory, gender, countries/regions, etc.
