ANSS/RRBC Peer Review Practice Draft

 

The ALA/ACRL/ANSS Resource Review & Bibliography Committee has practiced peer review of the resource review articles published in ANSS Currents in the Fall & Spring issues. The suggestions below describe the process for future use and practice.

 

Ideally, the process looks something like this:

  • Each review article topic is coordinated within the committee.

  • After author drafts article, the author shares with the RRB Committee for review

    • Fall: The draft is shared with committee members by September 1.

    • Spring: The draft is shared with committee members by February, week 4.

    • Coordinate with Publications Committee to set deadlines for receiving reviews.

  • Committee members offer suggestions and corrections by 2nd week in September/4th week in February.

    • General comments should use the guidelines linked above

    • Content comments should rely on subject and content expertise

    • Other comments rely on collegial context

    • Sometimes these can be extensive rewrites

  • Author reviews and finalizes the article, then returns a final draft to the committee

  • Final Review: Committee responds accordingly

  • Author/RRB Committee Chair forwards the article to ANSS Currents’ editor for final editing and publication

    • Submit to ANSS Currents September 12-15/March 28-31

Calendar:

Fall 2017 article peer review completed in mid-September.

Spring 2018 article peer review completed in early March.

RUSA RSS Services for Job Seeking Patrons

Online Doc Welcome/ Introduction/ Start thinking!

by Rachel Minkin on Fri, Jul 14, 2017 at 02:26 pm

Good afternoon, colleagues!

I am going to post this in ALA Connect too so it's all official-like... so you may receive notification about it later!

My name is Rachel and this is my second go around as chair for the RUSA RSS Services for Job Seeking Patrons. Welcome to all of you... some returning folks, some new!

Good afternoon, colleagues!

I am going to post this in ALA Connect too so it's all official-like... so you may receive notification about it later!

My name is Rachel and this is my second go around as chair for the RUSA RSS Services for Job Seeking Patrons. Welcome to all of you... some returning folks, some new!

Even though it's only July, we do need to start thinking about goals for the 2017-18 year. Last year we had the goal of holding a discussion forum at MidWinter on providing alternative services to job seeking patrons. It was in a really weird location (about a 100 miles from nowhere) but well attended.

Some possible goals for this year could be:

  • Host a discussion forum again at MidWinter (I believe that's in Denver this year)
  • Put together a program for ALA Annual (New Orleans)

The first RUSA RSS board meeting for the year is on July 31st and after that date, I might have more information about deadlines for MidWinter, Annual, and anything else we may want to join. I look forward to hearing YOUR ideas though. What are you interested in working on?

Hope to talk with you all soon, at least via email.

-Rachel
