Topic: Reviewing


In the News (Tue 21 Oct 14)

  
  Review - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In addition to a critical statement, the review's author may assign the work a rating (for instance, one to five stars) to indicate its relative merit.
In terms of scientific literature, reviews is a category of scientific paper, which provides a synthesis of research on a topic at that moment in time.
Peer review is the process by which scientists assess the work of their colleagues that has been submitted for publication in the scientific literature.

 Book reviewing - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about Book reviewing
The term ‘criticism’ is often taken to mean exclusively adverse comment, but in fact it refers to all literary assessment, whether positive or negative.
Students are often asked to adopt one of three approaches for a text analysis: a character and relationship study, a description of the principal themes and ideas in a work, or a review.

 Reviewing a Manuscript for Publication
Because a reviewer’s review is, in the same way, a recommendation to an editor, I have come to believe that a summary of the manuscript being considered is no less useful in the reviewer’s review.
Reviewers, in voluntarily identifying where their expertise may be lacking with regard to the manuscript being reviewed, might even gain additional credibility for their claims about where they do have expertise.
If the reviewer wishes to suggest a different framework and set of assumptions to the authors, this suggestion would be more convincing after the reviewer has demonstrated that he or she has given due consideration to the authors’ original framework, rather than dismissing it outright.

 Active Reviewing ~ article by Roger Greenaway
There is a risk that active reviewing might be seen as 'anti-language' or as an attack on the value of verbal reviewing.
Reviewing can be a time for examining any of these theories (whether about managing, or about teamwork, or about the nature and behaviour of their own group).
Active and creative reviewing techniques should be seen as basic tools in a reviewer's toolkit, but they will never replace the need for the skilful and imaginative use of verbal techniques, and for facilitating group discussions.

 MISQ Reviewers
Good reviewers act both as "gatekeepers" - ensuring that poor quality research is not published- and "value-adders." In this latter role reviewers are asked to recognize the potentialof a piece of research and then, through their written comments, try to help the authors meet that potential.
As the reviewing process is, unfortunately, a very slow one, by participating in a review panel you can see work a year or two before it appears in print.
Reviewing is also a very helpful way to get into the network of researchers working in your field.

 DVD Reviewer - Software Reviews
It's not like reviewing a movie where you watch the main feature, look at the extras and then rack your brain for something witty and erudite to say.
The only common ground with a DVD review is that the entire reference work comes on a single DVD and therefore takes up an awful lot less room than the paper equivalent.
Jitendar Canth's review of the 2003 edition refers closely to Chris Cox's review of the 2002 release of the software, so similarly I've referred to Jitendar's views of the software and whether any of his criticisms have been addressed in this new release.

NASA is reviewing over two dozen proposals to extend the useful scientific life of the Hubble Space Telescope, as well as safely dispose of the Earth orbiting observatory at the end of its life in space.
At present, a review of submitted ideas and discussions with proposal groups is actively underway.
However, while the submittals are now being reviewed, any go-ahead on a robotic servicing scheme for Hubble is far from assured.

 Paper Writing and Paper Reviewing   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
You can't throw all your time into a paper at the last minute and expect a good result: you will become saturated, lose perspective because you are too close to the material, and ultimately be spinning your wheels, changing stuff back and forth without a really good feeling for why you're doing it.
Even if you have written the paper with plenty of time and had a lot of outside review, after a certain point you will not be able to add much value without taking a break for a while (maybe a week or two).
Remember that this will be read by people who (a) have never heard of you and the review is anonymous anyway, (b) have never heard of your project, (c) are reading about 15-20 papers apiece, all in different subject areas.

We headed down a dimly lit hallway, past a janitor's office, a storage space with extension cords on the floor and an abandoned copy-machine room, and finally arrived at a stockroom.
Oscar and I were glad to meet, as I often write book reviews for the Chronicle, but we had only spoken on the phone.
The book editor at the time, David Kipen, was shifted to "book critic," responsible for reviewing two books per week, and Oscar got the job of overseeing Sunday's seven book pages, which now fall between "Dining Out" and "Get Together," the personals.

 Neil's World - XP Service Pack 2 Review
Now that I’ve been using XP SP2 for a bit longer, I’d like top present a fuller review of what’s new.
First, the bad news: Microsoft didn’t take the time to fix IE’s CSS bugs, nor the bug with changing the font size where absolute font sizes are specified, so us web designers don’t get a break with this release.
There are also improvements Bluetooth support, but I can’t review that since I have neither a Bluetooth dongle nor any device to use it with, as yet.

 People For the American Way - Raising a New Right-Wing Generation: Dinesh D'Souza
He is also a regular contributor to the Heritage Foundation's Policy Review and was its managing editor from 1985 through 1987.
Hardly a member of the radical left, a description generally applied to D'Souza critics, Woodson called D'Souza "the Mark Fuhrman of public policy," referring to a racist policeman in the O.J. Simpson case.
Loury, in his review of the book, notes that AEI marketed it extensively in business circles, that "Republican staffers on Capitol Hill are said to have eagerly anticipated how the book might move the affirmative action debate in the 'right direction,'" and that D'Souza was generously supported for the book's duration by the Olin Foundation.

 BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Music | Cat Stevens case 'under review'
"I think we have that obligation to review these matters to see if we are right," said US Secretary of State Colin Powell.
Mr Powell said the review of the case was not because of the publicity surrounding it, saying he undertook reviews, "not only with celebrities such as Mr Stevens, but for the average citizen coming across who gets stopped".
The case of another prominent Muslim, professor Tariq Ramadan, is also under review.

Max Ophuls is a highly distinctive name, well known to movie lovers as that of a German-born actor and stage director who, beginning in 1930, directed films in Germany, France, Russia, Italy, the Netherlands, and, after 1946, the United States.
Readers of this review will be spared, as the reviewer was not, the maddening exercise of trying to overlay Rushdie’s Ophuls with the historical one.
Why has Rushdie attached a gaudy celebrity name to a different sort of celebrity, preventing the Ambassador from coming into sharp, living focus on his own?
