Age Network Reviewer Registry
The Age Network maintains an internal Reviewer Registry. This is a service that relies on Network members to volunteer to serve as reviewers of journal submissions, grant proposals, and other scholarly documents. Members can also send their materials to the registry for review.
The Reviewer Registry is one initiative to increase intellectual exchange and collegiality among aging researchers across units at UF. More than twenty faculty members, with a wide range of expertise, have currently joined the registry.
- To join the registry: please email Susan Bluck, Age Network Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org To join the Registry you must be a faculty member in the CON, PHHP, or the Department of Psychology (CLAS).
- To request a review: please contact the Age Network Coordinator in your sponsoring unit:
(Psychology in CLAS)
Michael Marsiske (PHHP)
Beverly Roberts (CON)
Here are some simple guidelines for requesting a review:
(i) Contact a
coordinator as soon as you are aware that
you will need a review in future.
(ii) Next, please try to be ready to submit the document for review at least two weeks prior to the time at which you would like to receive feedback. Allowing two weeks will ensure that we can find reviewers who have time in their schedule to provide this service for you. Don’t feel that you need to provide a final draft! It may be better to provide a less polished draft in time for review and feedback incorporation.
(iii) If you don’t
have two weeks, please still contact
us. We will try to find a speedy reviewer for your document.
- Acting as a reviewer: Persons who have agreed to serve in the Reviewer Registry will periodically be contacted to serve as a potential reviewer for a document. If you have volunteered, then when documents become available for review, we will contact you to see if you can help. At that time you can let us know whether the review is of interest to you and the time frame for providing feedback fits your schedule.
- Requesting an external review: In some cases Age Network members may also want to request a review from an expert external to UF. Please contact the coordinator in your sponsoring unti if you feel you would benefit from such a review.
