Refereeing and Peer Review: A Roundtable Discussion
Speakers: Professor Shane Blackman, Dr Andrew M. Butler and Dr Agnes Gulyas (Canterbury Christ Church University)

One of the key things that underlies academic publication is the process of peer review – your fabulous manuscript is sent off to other probably overworked academics who will read your work for no money and help decide whether it will be published, will need to be revised or will end up somewhere else for to gain your intellectual glory.

How does this process work? How should you deal with it? And more to the point, how do you become a gatekeeper too? Come along to find out and share your own experiences.
Professor Shane Blackman is an associate editor of Journal of Youth Studies and is on the editorial board of Sociology, among many others. Dr Andrew M. Butler is an editor of Extrapolation, has peer reviewed for several journals and is still smarting from the report on his last book. Dr Agnes Gulyas is a member of the AHRC Peer Review College and of the Executive Committee of the Media, Communication and Cultural Association (MeCCSA).
