Help Wanted!

Refereeing for peer-reviewed journals is something that most of us see as "part of the job". We expect our own papers to be refereed with care, and in a timely manner. Not surprisingly, though, any journal editor will tell you that finding willing and conscientious referees is not an easy task.

As an Editor, Associate Editor, and Editorial Board member of several journals, I'm always on the look-out for good referees. In particular, I'm one of three Co-Editors of The Journal of International Trade & Economic Development. We publish 6 issues a year, have a double-bind refereeing process, and have an acceptance rate of around 12%.
