AST: Reviewers Recruitment



Participation in the peer-review process is absolutely essential to the success and reputation of the journal. Reviewers along with the editors determine which work is of quality and significance; and, because of the extensive readership, what research and scholarship will ultimately have an impact on literacy in classrooms nationally and internationally. Reviewers are asked to promote our journals by submitting their own manuscripts for review, by recommending and encouraging other potential authors, by introducing the journal to potential readers and subscribers; and/or by communicating formally and informally with the editors about issues of relevance to the journal.
