Become an SSRP Reviewer! 

As part of its ongoing development, the Social Studies Research and Practice journal is currently looking to expand its network of specialised reviewers. The journal is seeking reviewers who can provide constructive analysis of papers on the following topics (NB: this list is not exhaustive):

 

  • Online dissemination of research and practice in social studies (P-16)
  • The practical aspects of social studies 
  • The understanding of powerful and innovative research and practice in social studies 
  • The implementation of meaningful social studies research


The role is unpaid but appointment can be cited on your CV and the material you will be asked to review should be close to your own specialism. The journal is managed through ScholarOne’s Manuscripts system so familiarity with this system would be advantageous, though is by no means essential. Reviewers would normally be asked to review approx. two papers a year.
