Reviewing in the Rough

It's the 12th Annual (and hybrid) Reviewing in the Rough!!!

Reviewing in the Rough is a two-hour two-part workshop taking place at this year’s hybrid Academy of Management Annual Meeting on Friday, August 5th (time TBD).

In the first part of the workshop, which is open to all, participants will have an opportunity to gain key insights about the review process and quality reviewing through engaging presentations from the editor’s (Michael Pratt), reviewer’s (Mathew Grimes), and author’s (Allison Gabriel) perspectives. 

In the second part of the workshop, participants who complete their own reviews of a Journal of Applied Psychology original submission prior to the conference will receive feedback on these from experienced scholars in interactive breakout sessions. Participants will learn exclusive background information about the original submission from the author herself, along with the actual reviews of his team’s original submission and how they helped shape the final manuscript.

This is the 12th year of RIR and we are thrilled to have many outstanding scholars participating including (in alphabetical order): Cristiano Guarana, Hana Johnson, Shal Khazanchi, Brittany Lambert, Christopher Myers, Frits Pil, Christian Resick, Kristie Rogers, and John Paul Stephens.
