Ensure Quality: Become a Peer Reviewer
The ASNT Publications Department is seeking volunteer subject matter experts to assist staff and various Society committees in the peer review of its educational publications and related content.
ASNT membership, committee involvement, or ASNT certification, while encouraged, is not required to participate in the peer review process.
Expectations for Peer Reviewers
As a peer reviewer, you would use your expertise to
- Review text and figures for accuracy
- Review text for completeness
- Identify areas for improving content
