Peer-Reviewed Journal Publishing from the Perspectives of Editors and Authors

General Programming

October 18, 2021

The first of three workshops on Inclusion, Diversity and Equity in the Editing and Publishing of Peer-Reviewed Journals. Subsequent workshops will take place in February and April 2022.

Panelists: Susan Boynton (organizer), coeditor of Gesta; Callum Blackmore, editor of Current Musicology; Alex Gil and Kaiama Glover, coeditors of archipelagos; Seth Kimmel, Elisabeth Ladenson, and Pier Mattia Tommasino (Romanic Review); and Michelle Wilson (Digital Publishing, Columbia University Libraries)

Drawing on their experience with journals in the humanities and humanistic social sciences as editors and publishers, panelists will discuss the process of double-blind peer review (as well as other forms of review), the intellectual labor involved, the roles and compositions of editorial boards, and what authors need to know about how to submit their work and the stages of publication (as well as the costs authors typically bear for permissions to reproduce images or texts). The presentations will address the ethical expectations of authors and peer reviewers and issues concerning languages of publication.
