Greetings FSDW participants!
First of all, let me say how exciting it has been to meet each of you over the weekend and to learn about your diverse interests! We’ve got a great group here, and I’m excited for us to get started.
A few housekeeping items:
- Everyone who posted an introduction and who indicated that she/he was interested in participating has been assigned to a peer review group. Each group has also been assigned a group leader. Note: If you did not include your contact information (especially your email address) in your introduction, we ask that you please do so. This will allow group leaders to contact you to organize peer readings. For a list of peer review groups, visit this Google spreadsheet. Once there, click on group members' names to access their workshop introductions.
- If you are a group leader, we ask that you review the guidelines for group leaders. Keep in mind that group leaders are responsible for organizing how and when peer review groups read and respond to manuscripts.
- If at all possible, we’d love to receive updates from peer reviewers and group leaders throughout the week! To keep us updated, feel free to post a summary or reflection of your group’s progress to the FSDW group or to tweet about your experiences. (Use the hashtag (#) FSDW13) Also feel free to contribute to the workshop’s resources and materials Google doc.
- Remember that the peer review process should take place Monday-Thursday. On Friday, we ask that you post a summary of your workshop experience (see the workshop directions for details) as well as complete the workshop survey. The survey will be posted to the FSDW group by Thursday.
Lastly, if you are still interested in participating but were not able to post your introduction on time, we will try to create a peer review group for you, so long as you post your introduction by 5:00 ET on Monday. Prior to posting your introduction, please review the introduction guidelines.
As always, feel free to let us know if you have any questions or to point out something we've overlooked. :)
Have fun reading and responding to each other's work!
