Transformative Works and Cultures (TWC), the OTW’s scholarly journal, is looking to expand its pool of volunteer reviewers, especially for our Symposium section. If you are interested in peer reviewing for TWC, please come over to the site, sign up, and create a profile as Reviewer.
While we tend to solicit peer reviewers for the full essays from within academia (and fan studies scholars specifically), pretty much any fan who loves meta is a good match for a potential Symposium reader. So we want to spread the word and the work 🙂
You’ll be asked to fill out some information (such as uni affiliation if applicable), but, most importantly, there’s a field in the software where you input your interests and expertise.
Once you’ve created a reviewer account, please e-mail us to tell us who you are, how you found us, and what you are specifically interested in. We use the journal’s database to find reviewers, but it is often easier when we have spoken to reviewers already and know a bit about them. Then we’ll contact you when a manuscript comes in that fits your expertise, and ask if you can review it.
If you have any questions about reviewing; if you want to know more about submitting essays, Symposium pieces, or book reviews; or if you there’s something specific you want to know about TWC, please feel free to contact us by emailing editor (at) transformativeworks (dot) org. You may also want to take a look at the recent spotlight on TWC which discusses our production process.
We look forward to having you join the Journal Team!
