Peer review

An Editorial Board has been established for the Griffith Review, to provide peer review of those essays submitted for inclusion in the journal by academics who need such endorsement of their work for Australian Research Council and other academic purposes. The Board comprises a group of standing members and an expert panel.

The expert panel supplements the core Board membership for the review of articles related to the panel member’s field of expertise, in such specialist areas as history, political science, law, anthropology, sociology, international relations, environment and other areas as required.

 Membership of the Editorial Board currently includes:

 Standing Members

Professor Julianne Schultz, Griffith Review Editor

Professor Marilyn McMeniman

John Curtin Distinguished Professor Anna Haebich, Curtin University and Adjunct Professor, Griffith University

 Expert Panel Members

Professor AJ Brown, Griffith University

Professor Ann Curthoys, University of Sydney

Professor Glynn Davis, Vice Chancellor, University of Melbourne

Hon Dr Geoff Gallop, University of Sydney

Emeritus Professor John Hay, University of Queensland

Professor Ian Howard, College of Fine Arts, University of NSW

Emeritus Professor Ian Lowe, Griffith University

Professor Peter Spearritt, University of Queensland

Senior Research Fellow Peter Sutton, University of Adelaide & South Australian Museum

This list will be supplemented by other specialist area experts, as required.

An output in Griffith Review may be either a B1 Book Chapter or a C1 Journal Article, however:

  • For an output to be considered as a B1 Book Chapter, the output must meet all the HERDC criteria for a Book Chapter but unfortunately the Department changed the 2012 Specifications and if a Book or Book Chapter only has an online version, then it cannot be included in HERDC;

  • For an output to be considered as a C1 Journal article, the output must meet all the specific criteria for a Journal article including the criteria that it has to be peer-reviewed.

HERDC’s ‘research’ definition states that outputs need to demonstrate ‘substantial scholarly activity … in a format which allows a reader to trace sources of the work, including through citations and footnotes’.

Potential contributors seeking peer review are asked to email Griffith Review at griffithreview@griffith.edu.au to request it at the time of submission of their article. In order to meet publishing deadlines, any request for a peer review should be submitted four months prior to the scheduled publication date.
