About Peer Review
New Books Network 2023
The sixth episode of the CEU Press Podcast Series is all about the peer review process. Our guests are Rabea Rittgerodt, senior acquisitions editor for social/cultural history (19th-20th century) at De Gruyter and Jen McCall, CEU Press’s acquisitions editor for the Press’s history list. They talk to host Andrea Talabér about the ups and downs of the peer review process, how peer reviewers can give constructive feedback to authors and how authors can take on this feedback on board.
The CEU Press Podcast Series delves into various aspects of the publishing process: from crafting a book proposal, finding a publisher, responding to peer review feedback on the manuscript, to the subsequent distribution, promotion and marketing of academic books. We will also talk to series editors and authors, who will share their experiences of getting published and talk about their series or books.
Rabea is happy to hear from people interested in submitting a book proposal in 19th-20th century social, cultural, and global history. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Rabea tweets at @RabeaRi.
