Prospective Reviewers Invited to Periodicals Reviewers' Workshop 

Are you or your colleagues interested in strengthening your vitae? Then, we may have the perfect opportunity for you. Individuals who are currently JOPERD or Strategies reviewers as well as those who are interested in becoming reviewers of manuscripts submitted to either of SHAPE America's practical journals are invited to participate in a workshop at the SHAPE America National Convention &Expo in Seattle. The workshop will be conducted by Tom Sawyer, the JOPERD Law Review Editor, and will be held on Wednesday, March 18 from 12:30-2:30 p.m. Thomas Lawson, SHAPE America Senior Periodical Publications Manager, will be at the workshop to answer questions concerning the review process. 

Upon registration, workshop participants will receive actual manuscripts to review. They will bring their completed reviews to the workshop for comparison with reviews prepared by current reviewers. Previous participants have reported that the workshop helped them learn what to look for when reviewing for specific publications. 

In order to receive review materials, participants should register by February 27. To register, email joperd@shapeamerica.org and include "Reviewer's Workshop" in the subject line. We hope to see you there!
