Call for Reviewers
The Better Evidence Project calls for experts in the field to review original and secondary research for inclusion in our developing open access online Resource Library. The Resource Library will include evidence-based research directly applicable to the mitigation and prevention of warfare. Graduate students may also apply with a short writing sample (maximum eight pages). By the end of 2021, we plan to utilize a double-blind peer review system for the Resource Library and establish an Editorial Board and a Reviewer Pool.
BEP works to encourage, facilitate, and conduct research aimed at producing evidence that will guide practitioners and donors in reducing war where it exists or threatens to erupt in the near future. Our goal for the online resource library is to make accessible open-access research that provides guidance on peacemaking to policymakers, practitioners, and donors.
Reviewers will be asked to read up to 12 research papers, policy briefs, and practitioners guides relating to their topic of expertise or a related topic over the course of a year. Our reviewers will read original BEP research, as well as relevant research submitted to BEP from our HUB network. Reviewers will be provided with a criteria document to properly identify the types of research and qualities BEP seeks. We ask that our reviewers consider documents within 3 weeks upon receiving them so we can add relevant research to our Resource Library in a timely manner.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are willing to join our pool of reviewers for the BEP Resource Library.
