My discussion is based on my experiences
    • As an Author
    • As a Reviewer
    • As a Co-Editor, Asia, Journal of Asian and African Studies
The Meaning of Referee Review
    • Institutionalized Skepticism (制度性的懷疑) = Quality Control
    • Institutionalized skepticism aims to avoid the type 1 error: publishing a paper that should not have been published
High standards of scholarly works is a collective responsibility
  • It is also called Peer Review
  • Usually an anonymous process
Assessment by peers as a basis for judgment of their publishability
    • is this research important?
    • is the methodology sound?
    • is the analysis correct and logically coherent?
The fate of the manuscript is determined by the reviewers
  • The editor acts as a middle man and exercises some discretion
Some General Guidelines:
    • Identify intended audience and appropriate journals
    • Begin submission to the top journals
Manuscripts should be prepared in details even though much will not appear in the final printed product
  • Have thoughtful/complete citations
Try to make reviewer’s job easier (e.g., proofreading, eloquent writing, clear research questions)
  • Follow the journal guidelines (esp. page length)
  • Prepare an abstract
Manuscript preparations:
    • Clear research questions
      • in question format
      • in paragraph(s)
      • Help reviewers identify theoretical/policy significance
Literature Review
    • plays an important role in reviewer’s decision
    • studies should be grouped and assessed collectively (見林不見樹)
    • Note trends and themes, as well as gaps
If you have a quantitative paper
    • the data analysis should be an essay
    • keep the statistics in tables
    • minimize the use of numbers in the main text
    • link findings to your research questions
    • policy/theoretical implications
When you receive a rejection
    • Don’t be frustrated
    • Consider reviewers’ criticisms for revisions
    • Submit to the next journal
What to do if you receive a R&R (revise and re-submit)
    • explain revisions in a cover letter
    • don’t be afraid to contact the editor if there is confusion or conflict of opinions
The language problem:
    • proofread by a professional
    • co-authorship
