The 2021 National Programming Committee invites reviewers for papers, posters, and lightning talks for MLA ’21, to be held May 2021.
To apply, fill out the MLA ’21 Reviewer Signup form by October 20, 2020.
This year, there will be two rounds of submissions and reviews.
- Papers review period: October 26, 2020, to November 13, 2020
- Posters and lightning talks review period: January 26, 2021, to February 10, 2021
Reviewers are encouraged (but not required) to participate in both rounds of reviews.
Time commitment: Five to eight hours to read and score abstracts.
Training session: October 22 at 1:00 p.m., central time. Reviewers will be notified.
Method: Reviews will occur on an online system, which is accessible 24/7 during the review time frame. The training will be recorded and available throughout the entire review period. By filling out the interest form, you will receive an invitation to this training.
The role of an MLA abstract reviewer is separate from the abstract submission process. The online reviewing system does not match reviewers with their own abstracts and includes a method for reviewers to recuse themselves from reviewing specific abstracts for any reason.
All MLA members are welcome to participate in reviewing of abstracts. Please share this message with colleagues. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about the reviewing process, contact the Contributed Content Working Group.
