I guess that worked as designed
Work on my project in new method X is going along nicely. I’m starting to think of where to submit the eventual manuscript. In a fit of post-meeting optimism I started thinking about a relatively high profile general discipline journal run by one of the big Bashirology organizations. As part of thinking about the possible fit for the journal I went through the table of contents for the last few years to get a feel for what they’ve been publishing lately and see if there’s anything using method X. There was plenty of method X work (a good sign I think), I even got a recent method X article that should be helpful in terms the general structure. Also I ran across an odd little note in the journal from only a few months back. To paraphrase:
Reviewers from underrepresented groups wanted. Send in a CV, area of expertise details, a list of journals you would be interested in reviewing for, yadda yadda yadda
Huh. I’ve reviewed before for a few journals. Not this one, and none published by this organization. I’ve never seen any sort of solicitation for reviewers (other than for conferences) and certainly nothing targeted.
* shrugs *
I’ll send in my info and see what happens.
