Peer-Reviewing in Sociology 

March 8th, 2021

7:30am EST, 12:30pm GMT

Join us for an hour-long panel on professional and productive peer-reviewing! Peer-review is an important part of academic life, but few of us receive training on how to do this effectively (and compassionately). This webinar is designed to demystify this process.


As part of the International Association of Vegan Sociology’s launch for the Student Journal of Vegan Sociology, the faculty advisory board has designed a webinar on professional peer-review geared for students who are new to the process. The journal’s editorial board is student-led and this event was initially planned to offer as a training session. However, we quickly realized that this webinar would be of significant professional utility to the larger sociological community.


The event will be led by IAVS co-founder and past-chair of the Animals & Society Section of the ASA, Dr Corey Wrenn and will feature the expertise of leading scholars in our field, including Dr Matthew Cole of the Open University and co-founder of the CSA’s Society in Animals Research Cluster Dr Rochelle Stevenson of Thompson Rivers University. The panel will be followed by a Q&A. 


Given the heavy collaboration between professional groups (see below), we expect this event to present a unique opportunity for students and scholars to engage with the international sociological community.


This event is in collaboration with the following professional associations:

  • American Sociological Association (ASA)
  • Animals & Society Section of the ASA
  • British Sociological Association (BSA)
  • Human/Animal Studies Group of the BSA
  • Canadian Sociological Association (CSA)
  • Animals in Society Research Cluster of the CSA 
  • The Australian Sociological Association (TASA)
  • Sociology & Animals Thematic Group of TASA
  • Section of Interspecies Relations of the Polish Sociological Association
