Peripheries Publication Syndicate

This is for people looking for fresh eyes on their work, or help progressing their manuscript

On this page

Need help progressing your manuscript? Is your work just ‘sitting there’?

Need a fresh pair of eyes from a reader’s and interdisciplinary perspective?

We are a group of like-minded academics (Beginners, ECR, T&S, T&R, Experienced), independent researchers and PhD students here at the University of Dundee and around the globe, who agree to work together co-operatively in a ‘safe’ respectful space to further their mutual scholarship and publication outputs.

Members help move drafts of manuscripts (papers, book chapters, presentations, etc) one step closer to publication. It is never too early to submit a draft to us or a more developed piece. We also give advice around journal scoping and selection issues. Feedback is a “gift” from reviewer(s) to author – authors graciously receive that gift and do what they wish with it.

You will need to commit to meet monthly, review a manuscript and also when needed offer a manuscript for feedback.

We meet on a Monday, 10.30 – 12.00 (London time) face to face and via Zoom. Open to all.
