Nelson, Thomas
Issues in Teacher Education, v20 n1 p5-15 Spr 2011
This article describes the various components of a successful review from the standpoint of a veteran journal editor and encourages, in particular, young scholars to consider, if they have not already done so, becoming active participants not only in the authoring of scholarly work, but also as reviewers in the peer review process that is part of the publication of scholarly journals. The author intends to help clarify the processes associated with the reviewing of scholarly papers for consideration for publication in academic journals. Specifically, he focuses on the role and responsibilities of reviewers of scholarship in the field of theory, research, and practice in teacher education. He offers present and future readers a thoughtful approach to becoming engaged in the critique of scholarly work at the pre-publication level. He presents a set of guidelines that offer supportive and constructive feedback to authors who have submitted their manuscripts to academic journals.
