Call for ILA Global Conference Peer Reviewers

The Call for Reviewers has closed. Thank you to all who volunteered!

Selected reviewers were notified of their review assignments by email on Wednesday, 01 March. Reviewer instructions can be found here. Reviews are due on 21 March.

The ILA and the 2023 Global Conference Program Committee seek submission reviewers from a wide range of leadership backgrounds. The ILA Global Conference content is evaluated by more than 300 peer reviewers. Peer reviewers are invaluable in providing feedback on submissions that will inform the final selection of content for the global conference.

Selected reviewers will:

  • Read and review 20-25 submissions for each stream that selects them as a reviewer.
  • Rate each submission according to a set of evaluation criteria.
  • Provide comments to both the submitter and the program committee for each submission to support their decision.
  • Recommend accepting or rejecting each submission.
  • Have three weeks (01 – 21 March 2023) to complete this process using ILA’s online submission management platform (All Academic).
