The Review team is responsible for determining which submissions Discussions should publish. A double-blinded peer-review process that considers the quality of both writing and research is employed to ensure that all aspects of a submission are considered. All peer reviewers are undergraduate students with diverse academic backgrounds. In addition to carrying out the peer review process, members of the Review team also interview CWRU faculty regarding their research. If you would like to be a reviewer please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject, “Reviewer Interest.”
Once accepted by Review, submissions are given to Content to do the heavy-lifting. Copyeditors work as a unit and are responsible for renovating the journal’s verbatim. This includes, but is not limited to, reformatting an article’s structure, polishing and enhancing language, and updating the paper to fit APA standards. Team members read through each article to suggest improvements to the Director of Content. The team often grows passionate about an article, which makes discussions about suggestions the most enjoyable aspect of Content.
Copyediting is extremely rewarding, especially in the environment that Discussions creates. To join the team, please email the Director Natalie Zajczenko at email@example.com or Assistant Director Mia George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
