The Journal of Festival Culture Inquiry and Analysis are always seeking reviewers to add to our roster.

To support in our effort to publish high-quality peer-reviewed papers.

Become a JFCIA Reviewer!

Reviewers are currently sought by the Journal of Festival Culture Inquiry and Analysis to carry out double blind reviews. You will be aware that we are a newly created journal and as such we aim to start our journey on a positive and strong foundation. We aim to publish serious submissions that foreground inquiry on festival and celebratory culture that would not necessarily fall under festival culture because of its inter-, multi-, trans- or cross-disciplinary dimension.

JFCIA aims include (but not limited to):

  • Create knowledge and contribute to the academic literature by publishing high quality research on festival and celebratory culture.

  • Provide a platform for inquiry and intellectual discourse that supports and benefits those within the field (researchers, enthusiasts, practitioners etc.).

Eligibility and Experience 

  • We are looking for reviewers with an academic qualitative and quantitative background.

  • An interest in (but not limited to) culture, art, education, history, geography and literature.

  • Previous publishing experience is desirable (your CV must include publishing details, and 2 references attesting to your proficiency and competence).

  • Strong language and communication skills with an eye for detail desirable. 

Reviewer Benefits

  • Although there is no financial compensation we consider this to be an opportunity to become involved in a journal that focuses on the impact of culture and education in an effort to share and advance the study of festivals and celebration.

  • With this in mind, during the year you serve as a reviewer (one-year renewable) you can download a free copy of all the articles published.

  • Additionally, you will be added to our editorial board, and you are welcome to attend all our events (online, physical or hybrid).
