Call for National Journal of the NACAA Peer Reviewers

The Journal of the National Association of County Agricultural Agents is seeking national peer reviewers for the upcoming two editions (Volume 4, 2 and Volume 5, 1). Author submission deadlines are October 15th, 2011 for the December 1st publication and March 15th, 2012 for June 1st publication.

Peer reviewers are needed from all walks of ag related Extension and research. Subject matter areas include general agriculture/horticulture, livestock, economics, entomology, forestry, chemistry, natural resources, 4-H and practically any other topic relevant to Extension.

Being a peer reviewer for the Journal of the NACAA qualifies as national service and is an excellent addition to your resume or curriculum vitae. It is also relatively easy service since most reviewers will not be asked to review more than two papers per volume. The review process is blind (authors will not know you or your institution) and takes place entirely online.

To be considered as a Journal of the NACAA Peer Reviewer, you must have published at least one peer reviewed journal article or Extension bulletin.

To apply, send me an email ( with your title, your electronic contact information, subject matter areas and accepted peer reviewed literature citation. I have written an example below:

Stephen Brown
District Agriculture Agent, Mat-Su/Copper River Districts
(907) 745-3639

Subject Matter Expertise: high latitude agriculture, precision agriculture, turf, poultry, 4-H

Brown, S.C., 2010. 2010 Status of Precision Agriculture in Alaska, Journal of the National Association of County Agricultural Agents, 3(1).
