ANSS/RRBC Peer Review Practice : Draft Updated 7/11/2017

 

ANSS/RRBC Peer Review Practice Draft

 

The ALA/ACRL/ANSS Resource Review & Bibliography Committee has practiced peer review of the resource review articles published in ANSS Currents in the Fall & Spring issues. The suggestions below describe the process for future use and practice.

 

Ideally, the process looks something like this:

  • Each review article topic is coordinated within the committee.

  • After author drafts article, the author shares with the RRB Committee for review

    • Fall: The draft is shared with committee members by September 1.

    • Spring: The draft is shared with committee members by February, week 4.

    • Coordinate with Publications Committee to set deadlines for receiving reviews.

  • Committee members offer suggestions and corrections by 2nd week in September/4th week in February.

    • General comments should use the guidelines linked above

    • Content comments should rely on subject and content expertise

    • Other comments rely on collegial context

    • Sometimes these can be extensive rewrites

  • Author reviews and finalizes the article, then returns a final draft to the committee

  • Final Review: Committee responds accordingly

  • Author/RRB Committee Chair forwards the article to ANSS Currents’ editor for final editing and publication

    • Submit to ANSS Currents September 12-15/March 28-31

Calendar:
