Call for Peer Reviewers

The Scattered Pelican is seeking current graduate students to assess the quality of submitted articles in a double-blind peer review process. The Scattered Pelican offers a platform for the publication of critical papers by graduate students and other invited scholars, and we believe that peer review is an essential part of publication as it helps determine that all submitted manuscripts are evaluated with academic rigor and follow a set of professional criteria. Being a peer reviewer is also a fantastic opportunity to engage with the practice of scholarly publishing while also providing a way to serve the community and to establish networks. The Scattered Pelican is looking to work with volunteer scholars from a wide variety of fields and disciplines, including but not limited to Comparative Literature, World Literature, English, Film Studies, Cultural Studies, Area Studies or Critical Theory.

This year, The Scattered Pelican has received papers in English, French and Spanish. We are now preparing for our 2019 issue. If you would like to join The Scattered Pelican as a peer reviewer, please fill out this application form (Permalink at: For questions or clarifications, you may send us an email at
