How to Get Involved

Review Committee

The Review committee is the first group to look at submitted articles. Reviewing is done on a rolling basis throughout the semester. Each reviewer will be responsible for up to three articles. Reviewer responsibilities include reading and scoring articles, attending review meetings, and making/voicing comments to the board. If you would like to be a reviewer please email discussionsjournal@gmail.com with the subject, “Reviewer Interest.”

Content Committee

The Content committee works with articles that have been selected for publication. Committee members (copy editors) edit articles for grammar and syntax errors as well as general clarity. Copy editors are compensated for their work. If you are interested in becoming a copy editor, please email discussionsjournal@gmail.com with the subject, “Content Interest.”

 

Public Relations/ Information Committee

These committee members assist the Director of Public Relations and Director of Information. They manage our website and presence on social media, advertise, and distribute our journal. For those wanting to work on the website, previous knowledge of web programming languages (HTML, CSS, javascript, XML, etc.) is not required, but is highly encouraged. This is a great opportunity to gain experience and have creative control.
