The Associated Schools of Construction Region 1 understands the benefits of the peer review procedure in the overall publication process — not only in assisting the author in crafting their individual publication, but also in supporting the integrity and reputation of the conference proceedings process. Identifying and selecting appropriate reviewers who have proficiency and interest in the various topics unique to each manuscript are essential elements in ensuring a timely, productive peer review process. For this conference, reviewers are asked to review several manuscripts and to return their comments within one week. In an effort to facilitate the selection of appropriate peer reviewers for the ASC Region 1 conference proceeding, we ask that you take a moment to send your contact information to Dr. Michael Emmer at: by Friday, September 9, 2016.
