Are you a student of anthropology in Utrecht and do you enjoy reading academic papers? Would you be willing to read, evaluate, and discuss papers written by fellow students with a peer-group, to make the final selection for the third edition of SCAJ? Then you can join our selection committee and become a reviewer! 

As a reviewer, you will be part of a group of 4-5 anthropology students from various programs and years of study in Utrecht. The review process will be guided by one of our core reviewers. Between 22 February and 19 March, you will read 4-5 anonymized papers and evaluate them regarding style, originality, and argumentation. You will meet up with your peer-group and decide which of the papers are eligible for publication.
