Focus and Scope


We are proposing a cross-University writing and reviewing project designed to meet three main aims:

1. To increase publication outputs
2. To improve the quality and ethics of reviewing
3. To cultivate a strong and supportive external research environment

Led by the University of Leicester, School of Business this project will see a group of Universities work together to improve the standards of ethical reviewing whilst simultaneously supporting the development of their early career researchers.  RaW is based on a pseudo peer-review journal designed to simulate the academic writing and reviewing process.

Peer Review Process


In RaW, the training journal, academic articles are submitted and reviewed like in a real journal. But in difference to a real journal, the articles are not published by RaW. We aim instead at improving both the academic papers submitted as well as provide training for reviewers. That is right: In RaW not only the papers are reviewed but also the reviews.

Each paper will receive a max of two rounds of reviews. The review themselves will be reviewed by the authors, as well as by members of the editorial board.
