Pair Two |
Saturday, April 9, 4:30 - 5:45 p.m.; 200AB

Quality Assurance in the Age of Author Self-Archiving. In the age of
author self-archiving, there are forces, factors, and influences other
than pending classical peer review that can assure the quality of
scholarship before formal publication. Among these alternative approaches
are institutional review, 'critical peer response', 'action learning', and
Total Quality Scholarship. Gain an understanding of the strengths and
weaknesses of conventional peer review process and develop an awareness of
current and emerging alternative models to traditional peer review.
Presenter(s): Gerry McKiernan, Iowa State University


NOTE: The emphasis will be on EMERGING!

BTW: If you are unable to attend the entire session, please don't
hesistate to stop by at the end to offer to buy me a beer [:-)
