Peer Review

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

PACJA aims to encourage clear, scholarly writing and to offer a supportive experience for authors through a process of rigorous peer review that leads to the publication of relevant, high quality research.

Why be a peer-reviewer for PACJA? Australasian research needs your expertise. Only a scholarly researcher or qualified and experienced practitioner can competently review research in these fields. By contributing this expertise you are helping to maintaining standards of research quality while building activity and new research in your own area of interest and related fields. Reviewing maintains your knowledge of research developments and enhances your standing in the profession. It is also vital in mentoring new authors to make their own contribution to research knowledge.

PACJA warmly invites you to register your availability to be a reviewer by filling in the short form on the ‘Register to be a Reviewer‘ page. This will help us to match your expertise and interests with the most relevant submissions. The ‘Reviewer Guidelines‘ (also under the ‘Peer Review’ tab) outlines what is expected of reviewers. Further information can also be obtained from the Editor at editor@pacja.org.au
