  6. 6. What makes a<br />great review?<br />• Share the positive about each review. <br />• Be as descriptive as possible in the critique.<br />• There is always a way to take the time to point out what IS working and how to improve.<br />• If something is borderline, a review that goes into detail is going to be much more useful (to the committee and the author). <br />• While brief reviews are easier to write, they have more potential for causing problems further down the pipeline.<br />
  7. 7. What makes a great review? (con’t.)<br />When reviewing submissions there are several key questions to address such as: <br />• Is the content original or updated?<br />• Is the topic relevant?<br />• Will this benefit attendees (you)?<br />• Is the material presented clearly?<br />• Is the presenter qualified for this material?<br /><ul><li>Would you choose this over all others to see?</li></li></ul><li>Why should you review?<br />• Applying only takes a few minutes!<br />• Be involved in helping to shape UPA 2012. <br />• The review process is simple and it gives you the exposure to what others in the field are thinking. <br />• Learn new information in your industry<br /><ul><li>Be part of something amazing!</li></li></ul><li>Help shape the UPA<br />2012 International Conference<br />Your participation could be key to adding engaging and informative presentations for this year!<br />
