Articles published in the The Global Studies Journal are peer reviewed by scholars who are active members of the Global Studies knowledge community. Reviewers may be past or present conference delegates, fellow submitters to the journal, or scholars who have volunteered to review papers (and have been screened by Common Ground’s editorial team). This engagement with the knowledge community, as well as Common Ground’s synergistic and criterion-based evaluation system, distinguishes the peer review process from journals that have a more top-down approach to refereeing.

The Global Studies Journal reviewers are assigned to papers based on their academic interests and scholarly expertise. In recognition of the valuable feedback and publication recommendations that they provide, reviewers are acknowledged as Associate Editors in the volume that includes the paper(s) they reviewed. Thus, in addition to the The Global Studies Journal Editors and Advisory Board, the Associate Editors listed below have contributed significantly to the overall editorial quality and content of the journal.
