Proposal Title

Public Review: Taking SoTL Beyond Traditional Peer Review

Proposal Abstract

The Journal of Instructional Research (JIR) is an annual publication highlighting faculty research relevant to best practices in post-secondary instruction. Unique to JIR is the use of a two-stage evaluation process with public peer review, interactive discussion and, for interested authors, final formalized peer review. The overarching goal of JIR is to allow SoTL researchers an opportunity for public review of their work to promote innovative, quality research examining post-secondary teaching and learning. Through the public review process, authors receive feedback to allow them to revise their research prior to submitting for publication. Using the information from the public review, authors can revise their work to submit either to JIR for publication consideration or they may elect to submit to another publication outlet. Submissions to JIR are subject to a formalized peer review to determine suitability for publication. Presentation will introduce audience members to JIR as an outlet for their SoTL work and will invite a discussion on the challenges, benefits, limitations and considerations of utilizing a public review process.
