Event Recording Access: Current AIB members will be able to access a recording of this event in the “AIB Video Archive” section of our login portal. New webinar recordings are typically posted within five business days of the original event date.

Event Overview: One of the most important tasks for a scholar is to provide feedback to peers by reviewing conference submissions and journal articles. Although guidelines are available, people who are new to reviewing or who seek to refine their reviewing skills may still have questions such as ‘How do you learn how to review? What is the difference between reviewing for a conference versus for a journal? What does a constructive review mean, and how do you write one? What are common mistakes that reviewers make? What are the differences between reviewing a quantitative paper versus a qualitative paper? What can you learn from reviewing that benefits your own work and navigation of the publishing process? What ethical issues can arise during the review process?’

To address these questions and more, AIB and the RM-SIG will be running two reviewing webinars (to cater for as many time zones as possible), during which current/former senior editors and researchers who have won best reviewer awards will provide tips and best practices for reviewing. The webinars are timed to coincide with papers for the AIB annual meeting being sent out for review. They are a great introduction for IB scholars who are new to reviewing, as well as those who want to benefit from the experience of those with considerable knowledge of the publication process.
