Support COMJIG: Be a paper reviewer

Dear Supporters of Community Journalism,
As the Research Chair for the Community Journalism Interest Group, I am in the process of trying to recruit people who can help in reviewing papers for our refereed conference presentations at the AEJMC convention this August in St. Louis. We are expecting our largest number of submissions this year and we’re hoping to enlist the help of as many reviewers as possible to make the process a valuable one that will encourage scholars to submit work to us again in the future.
If you can help, please do two things before March 4:

1. Contact me directly (jhatcher@d.umn.edu) and let me know of your interest in participating. I will add you to my list.

2. Go to the All-Academic site through the AEJMC website or to this address http://www.allacademic.com/one/aejmc/aejmc11/ and create an account (username and password) in the All-Academic System. Go to the right side of the page and scroll down until you come to “Click here to create new username and password.”
I would like for you to create your account by Friday, March 4, 2011. This will allow for assignments of papers to proceed quickly and you will have immediate access to your assigned papers to judge soon after the All-Academic system closes for paper uploading.
Creating your username and password now will also allow you to submit papers and download conference papers when they are available. Because All-Academic recognizes you by your created account, you can submit, judge and download papers all from the same created account. You will not be able to view anything yet with All-Academic, but creating your username and password will allow us to complete the process of updating the site for the St. Louis Paper Call. Each year is unique, and if you created an account last year, you will need to do so again this year.
Thank you for assisting the Community Journalism Interest Group of AEJMC. Your input is invaluable. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to working with you this year.
John Hatcher
Research Paper Competition Chair
