Call for MLA '22 Reviewers

The 2022 National Programming Committee invites members to sign up to review papers, posters, and lightning talk abstracts for the MLA ’22 annual conference.

To apply, fill out the MLA ’22 Reviewer Signup form by October 11, 2021.

This year, there will be two rounds of submissions and reviews.

  • Papers review period: October 20, 2021, to November 10, 2021
  • Posters and lightning talks review period: January 31, 2022, to February 11, 2022

Reviewers are encouraged (but not required) to participate in both rounds of reviews.

Time commitment: Approximately five hours to read and score abstracts.

Training session: October 12 at 1:00 p.m., central time. Reviewers will be notified.

Method: Reviews will be processed through the online review system, which is accessible 24/7 during the review time frame. The reviewer training session will be recorded and available throughout the entire review period. By filling out the survey, 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 automatically prevents reviewers from reviewing 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 the reviewing of abstracts and will receive 1 AHIP point for their participation. 

Please share this message with colleagues. If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about the reviewing process, contact the Contributed Content Working Group.
