Call For Div 9 at APA Program Reviewers
We are the Program Chairs of The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues (SPSSI), Division 9 of the American Psychological Association (APA), and would like to invite you to serve as a reviewer for SPSSI’s Program Committee for the 2013 APA Annual Convention in Honolulu, Hawaii, July 31–August 4, 2013.
As a reviewer, you will review poster, individual paper, and/or symposia proposals. By serving as a reviewer, you will provide a valuable service to SPSSI and contribute to the divisional programming at the APA Convention.
We will receive proposals in all areas of psychology relevant to social issues; however we also will receive proposals on our conference theme, “Diversity, Disparity, and Disadvantage: Implications for Research, Public Policy, and Social Justice.”
Reviewers will receive their assignments shortly after the submission deadline (November 16th) with instructions, and have approximately 2 weeks to submit the reviews online using a structured form. It is our hope that each program committee member will receive approximately 12 proposals. Anonymous reviews will be used. If you are willing to serve as a reviewer, please click on the link below, which will ask you to submit information such as your title, institution, area of interests/expertise, etc. Note that we welcome and encourage advanced doctoral students to serve as reviewers as well.
Please complete the online form by October 30, 2012.
