Be a reviewer

I am interested in being a reviewer, what’s involved?

Routes seeks to be a space for publishing the very best of student work in geography. This requires the expert knowledge of a diverse community of geographers who are able to ensure that this work is accurate, innovative and rigorous scholarship that represents the diversity of our discipline.

Geography teachers, post-graduate geography students and those with geography doctorates are integral to this process. By reviewing submissions, you help facilitate opportunities for student geographers to develop their scholarship.

Please sign-up to be a reviewer for Routes. 

Who can be a reviewer?

If you are:

  • a current UK-based geography teacher with QTS and experience of sixth form teaching,
  • a current post-graduate student in geography (master’s or doctorate),
  • a current UK-based researcher/ lecturer in geography with a doctorate,

We are especially, but not exclusively, looking for current teachers in the state sector to join the review panel.

If you are a PGCE student and in your final term you can sign up to be a peer reviewer.

As a peer reviewer, you will be sent student submissions to peer review that match your area of interest and expertise.
