Articles published in The International Journal of Science in Society are peer reviewed by scholars who are active members of the Science in Society knowledge community. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the journal, or scholars who have volunteered to review papers (and have been screened by Common Ground’s editorial team). This engagement with the knowledge community, as well as Common Ground’s synergistic and criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes the peer review process from journals that have a more top-down approach to refereeing.
Science in Society reviewers are assigned to papers based on their academic interests and scholarly expertise. In recognition of the valuable feedback and publication recommendations that they provide, reviewers are acknowledged as Associate Editors in the volume that includes the paper(s) they reviewed. Thus, in addition to the The International Journal of Science in Society's Editors and Advisory Board, the Associate Editors listed below have contributed significantly to the overall editorial quality and content of the journal.
