Have You Noticed Our Peer Review Badge?

After two years of publication, Writers Who Care has shifted from editorial review to blind, peer review for the majority of our posts.  We have made this shift for several reasons:

  1. We are a multi-authored, academic blog, and we strive to reach the highest integrity in academic publishing.
  2. We believe the best publications are collaborative, bringing in many voices.
  3. The editorial team works on behalf of the Commission on Writing Teacher Education, and many members of this commission can contribute to the work of the blog.

Though the blog structure differs from traditional academic journals, we have created a system that honors traditional peer review while adapting for changing times in what it means to be an academic writer in a public sphere.

We may continue to publish editorial reviewed posts.  Posts that have been peer-reviewed will be marked with our symbol:

We would like to thank our reviewers for their commitment to making this blog high quality.

We look forward to publishing the voices of professors, teachers, and parents at Writers Who Care.
