Abstract

Population Research and Policy Review 20: 1–2, 2001. © 2001 Kluwer Academic Publishers. Printed in the Netherlands. ELWOOD CARLSON, Editor Various professional responsibilities in the academic world fall under the general rubric of ‘service’. Young scholars preparing tenure evaluation files become very familiar with this category of activities, and also develop a keen sensitivity to the priority that their senior colleagues attach to research and teaching. Of all the forms of service to the discipline, agreeing to review manuscripts submitted to journals for publication remains one of the most precarious. When journal editors gather in the dimly-lit bars of convention hotels to cry upon each other’s shoulders, it is the topic of securing good reviewers for manuscripts that always provokes the most copious tears and heavy drinking. However, members of the Southern Demography Association may take considerable pride in the fact that their official journal, Population Research & Policy Review, can point to a list of reviewers for volume 19 (published in 1999) as good as any list of reviewers you will find anywhere in our dis- cipline. It is a largely thankless and sometimes awkward task, for which no one receives any money or much other conventional academic
