Peer-Reviewing in Sociology

in collaboration with the International Association Of Vegan Sociology

8 March 2021

About this Event

A panel discussion on peer-reviewing in Sociology; aimed at students and junior scholars.

Join us for an hour-long panel on professional and productive peer-reviewing! Peer-review is an important part of academic life, but few of us receive training on how to do this effectively (and compassionately). This webinar is designed to demystify this process.

As part of the International Association of Vegan Sociology’s launch for the Student Journal of Vegan Sociology, the faculty advisory board has designed a webinar on professional peer-review geared for students who are new to the process. The journal’s editorial board is student-led and this event was initially planned to offer as a training session. However, we quickly realized that this webinar would be of significant professional utility to the larger sociological community.

The event will be led by IAVS co-founder and past-chair of the Animals & Society Section of the ASA, Dr Corey Wrenn and will feature the expertise of leading scholars in our field, including Dr Matthew Cole of the Open University and co-founder of the CSA’s Society in Animals Research Cluster Dr Rochelle Stevenson of Thompson Rivers University. The panel will be followed by a Q&A.

Given the heavy collaboration between professional groups (see below), we expect this event to present a unique opportunity for students and scholars to engage with the international sociological community.


This event is free of charge but registration is required.  A Zoom invite will be sent in early March.

This event is in collaboration with the following professional associations:

  • British Sociological Association (BSA)
  • Canadian Sociological Association (CSA) (Zoom host)
  • International Association of Vegan Sociologists
  • Animals & Society Section of the American Sociological Association
  • Human-Animal Studies Group of the BSA
  • Animals in Society Research Cluster of the CSA
