Recommendations to Enhance One Another’s Writing
The Popular Article written in the previous workshop provided you with an opportunity to explore an academic topic of your choosing based on the needs of your applied doctoral project and or a specific business-related topic of interest. As you wait for feedback from your facilitator, you will actively pursue feedback from your fellow classmates by sharing a draft of the article for peer review. Consider this submission an opportunity to strengthen and enhance your writing skills as well as collaborate with peers through the sharing of insights and the exchange of recommendations to enhance one another’s writing.
For this assignment, you will submit your Popular Article for review by another student. Likewise, you will also conduct a review of another student’s article. Throughout the review process, seek to incorporate the knowledge and information you have gleaned from the texts and resources and writing practice in this course. This task affords you the benefit of a peer review where multivariant perspectives and viewpoints are used to analyze and critique your work in a safe, productive, and collegial way—as you reciprocate in the same process. There is no expectation that anyone is an expert; indeed, the goal of this assignment is to share and receive feedback and affirm good writing habits.
Upon successful completion of this discussion, you will be able to:
Demonstrate doctoral level writing skills.
Why learn to peer review?
Those involved in peer review recognize how important the process is to maintain the quality and integrity of scientific literature. It can be [a bit] daunting — but it comes with huge benefits.
The benefits of peer review include staying abreast of the latest research trends in your field, improving your own writing skills and learning how to better present your own research to journal editors. Peer review also helps you to forge those critically important relationships with editors at the elite journals in your field, which can work in your favor when you submit your own work for publication.
So, with all these benefits on offer, what can new academics do to get onto an editor’s peer review database? (Want to Peer Review, n.d., Why Learn)
Top ways to tap into the benefits of becoming a reviewer:
Contact editors or publishers directly. (Check out the info below.)
Join researcher networks. One example is ResearchGate (new tab).
Network and make connections. Consider starting with a LinkedIn group or member organization.
Attend conferences and seminars (a great way to network . . . and volunteer!).
Publish, publish, publish.
. . . . Uh oh, two of the more significant benefits were left off the list— becoming a better writer and critical thinker.
To put the above into perspective, consider one example, the Christian Business Faculty Association (new tab), whose mission is to “empower Christian business faculty to transform the world for the glory of God” (About CBFA, n.d., Mission). Each year, the CBFA conference (new tab) is held on site at a Christian university. Typically, attendees can stay on campus while attending the conference or staying in a hotel nearby. So, what are the benefits of CBFA?
The annual conferences are reasonably priced, and they provide a wealth of new learning as you ‘hang out’ with thought leaders.
There are opportunities to present your research at the conference when they send out a call for papers.
You can also volunteer to become a peer reviewer of the submitted presentations.
Or consider volunteering to be a moderator at a conference.
Moreover, CBFA publishes two journals: Journal of Biblical Integration in Business (JBIB(new tab)) and Christian Business Academy Review (CBAR(new tab)). Check out the links where you can access archived journals.
Networking and making connections . . . and all for the annual fee of $50 (see CBFA membership (new tab)).
Wow! The above list looks quite impressive. The CBFA provides the up-and-coming and seasoned academic business professionals with a wealth of resources that clearly are aimed at helping you to become the best professional you (academic, businessperson, author, reviewer….).
