Articles published in The Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Journal Collection are peer reviewed by scholars who are active members of The Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Research Network. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the collection, or scholars who have volunteered to referee articles and have been screened by Common Ground’s editorial team. This engagement with the Research Network, as well as Common Ground’s synergistic and criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes our peer review process from those of journals that have a more top-down, editor-centric approach to refereeing.
The Interdisciplinary Social Sciences Journal Collection reviewers are assigned to articles based on their academic interests and scholarly expertise. In recognition of the valuable feedback and publication recommendations that they provide, reviewers may request an official letter/certificate.
When publishing with us, you don’t just get the opportunity to write, you also provide feedback on other articles submitted to the journal collection.
The guidance that reviewers supply is invaluable and helps to shape the journal collection.
Participating in the review process is a great way to gain first-hand experience with the publishing process.
We recognize the important role of peer reviewers by acknowledging their contribution with an official letter/certificate.
