Call for Student Reviewers
Katharine Sharp Review
The Katharine Sharp Review, the first electronic journal featuring
scholarship and research by students in the field of library and
information science, is seeking volunteers to participate on the
peer-review board for the next year. The review process needs reviewers
to make this a true 'peer-review' and the opportunity to participate in
the editorial process first hand will be both enjoyable and educational.
The due date for applications is Thursday, October 8.
The review board will be responsible for the selection and review of all
submitted articles. The length of commitment to the editorial board will
be for a full year (actually from now through July) and will comprise two
issues (April and August). Each reviewer will be responsible for
returning complete critical reviews in a timely manner that will provide
guidance as to the acceptability of any one submission.
In order to be considered as a potential board member/reviewer, you must
currently be enrolled in a LIS program (both MLS and PhD students are
encouraged to consider), have ready access to e-mail as this will be the
primary means of communication, ability to view documents in Adobe Acrobat
(PDF) format, and preferably a graphical WWW browser (e.g., Netscape or
Internet Explorer). A strong command of English, knowledge of the library
and information science field, and a strong desire to take part in a
unique and ground-breaking publication is also recommended!
If you are interested in applying for this unique opportunity, please
1) your name and institution,
2) a description of your general interests within the field,
3) a *brief* paragraph describing your interest in participating in
the review process, and
4) perhaps three or four keywords describing your specific interests
in LIS (these are used to send you papers related to your
5) the approximate date you will be graduating from your program
to the editor, Kevin Ward, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The due
date for all applications is Thursday, October 8.
