Purpose

In this two semester-long seminar (meeting every other week), we will discuss how to review and write paper-length academic manuscripts. Understanding how to review an academic manuscript can be very helpful in improving one’s own writing. The seminar will hence start by reviewing some unpublished manuscripts. What makes for an interesting article? What are the different characteristics of leading journals? What works and what does not work for communicating an idea? Who gets cited, and who does not, and why? How can one write a constructive peer review report? How does one respond to a critical peer reviewer? In a second part, researchers will meet with journal editors (e.g. European Journal of International Relations, International Theory) as well as comment on each other’s manuscripts and prepare them for review.

By the end of the course, researchers will have:
  • become familiar with the peer review process;
  • are able to peer review others’ work in a constructive and well-meaning manner;
  • become (more) aware of the existing biases and politics of publishing;
  • prepared a manuscript to send out for review.
Syllabus is available here
