This workshop is intended for persons who want to submit to, and/or review research articles for the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society (JAGS), including the JAGS Junior Reviewers. Participants will work in small groups, with facilitation by JAGS editorial board members, to review an article on site, using the JAGS review checklist, discuss the findings, and present their conclusions. Prior to the workshop, participants will be expected to have reviewed an on-line webinar that describes how a review for JAGS should be conducted and offers a working example of such a review. Learning Objectives: (1) use the JAGS checklist to review an article; (2) decide what recommendation to give about acceptance; and (3) review what steps are needed for improving the paper.
