Delighted to announce that the Introduction to Peer Review I co-wrote last year has finally been published by PLOTINA and the EU. It’s, you’ll be pleased to know, a relatively brief introduction to the art, practice and ethics of peer review, with a target audience of post-graduate and early career authors. Naturally I’m delighted to see it finally available, and deeply grateful to Warwick’s Department of Politics and International Studies, and the PLOTINA Project, for asking me to contribute to it.
Naturally, I retained the film rights and first refusal as to who plays me in the film of the book!
The booklet pulls on, among other sources, the wonderful contributions from last year’s summer school on peer review that I was honoured to be involved in facilitating.

Delighted to note that one of my veteran editors, Dr Marcos Estrada, has been formally invited to visit Marquette University in Milwaukee, USA in a couple of weeks. Marcos will not only be delivering a lecture on transnationalism, and participating in various classroom-based engagements, but will also be screening his award-winning ethnographic documentary Brasiguaios: Transnational Lives and Identities on Thu 21st March. I know being Marcos he’ll also be taking the chance to highlight his work with Exchanges, and who knows, hopefully encourage some of the students and faculty he’ll be meeting with to consider submitting a manuscript to us.
There's a flyer on the event here, in case anyone reading this is in the area!
