Reviewing is a critical “professional responsibility” and an integral part of participating in the academic community (Trevino, 2008). Yet Tsang and Frey (2007: 129) noted that “there is no formal training for referees who usually pick up their review skills through learning by doing.” This raises a perplexing question for doctoral students and junior faculty: how to develop critical reviewing skills with so few opportunities to practice the art of reviewing? This PDW provides participants with a rare opportunity to learn and practice the art of reviewing. Prior to the conference, participants will be asked to prepare a formal review of an original submission of Drew Carton’s manuscript, “I’m not mopping the floors, I’m putting a man on the moon: How NASA leaders enhanced meaningfulness of work by changing the meaning of work” (Carton, 2017). The actual workshop will consist of two parts: (1) a panel and (2) interactive roundtables. The panel will provide participants an opportunity to gain key insights about the review process and quality reviewing from scholars who have served as Associate Editors and Editorial Board Members at leading journals in our field. In the interactive roundtables, Drew will provide background information about the original submission of his manuscript. Participants will then break into small groups, each facilitated by an experienced faculty member, to discuss and receive feedback on their formal reviews. Drew will share the actual reviews of his original submission and how they helped shape the final manuscript. The PDW will conclude with a question and answer period with Drew.
