2012 Program Theme: The Informal Economy An expanding set of economic activity is taking place outside countries’ legal boundaries. Indeed, the proliferation of organizations being formed and operating in the informal economy is an important aspect of today’s world. For some, working in the informal economy is a choice. For example, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development suggests that in some countries, individuals choose to supplement their income from a job in the formal economy with the income generated by a second job in the informal economy. But for others, perhaps those living in conditions of desperate poverty, to work in the informal economy isn’t a choice—it’s a necessity.

Call for Reviewers

The Academy is calling for reviewers for its 2012 Annual Meeting Program, August 3 - 7, in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A.

If you are interested in being a part of the review process, we highly encourage you to sign up as a volunteer reviewer for the divisions or interest groups in which you are a member, planning to submit to, or are interested in. Divisions and Interest Groups will also be following up with those of you who have reviewed in the past. Please note that even if you have reviewed in the past, you still need to sign up for the 2012 Annual Meeting.

You can sign up to review for up to three divisions and/or interest groups. You may be asked to review up to three (3) submissions (papers and symposia) per division or interest group that is selected. So the maximum number of review assignments that you could potentially receive from the divisions and interest groups that you select is nine (9).

You can also sign up to review for the All-Academy Theme (AAT) Program consisting of symposia that focus on the the 2012 Program Theme, "The Informal Economy". The AAT Program Chair, Bat Batjargal, will make the review assignments based on matching keywords that relate to the theme. Being a reviewer for the AAT program is in addition to your review participation with the Academy divisions and interest groups.

The review period for the 2012 Annual Meeting is from January 10, 2012 (Submission Deadline) to February 9, 2012 (Review Deadline). However, you might be asked to review submissions that come in before the submission deadline. Please check your work schedule to make sure that you will be able to review during this period.

Being a reviewer will add more visibility to you and your institution and give you an opportunity to be more involved in the Academy's program. We hope that you strongly consider reviewing for at least one division or interest group.

To sign up, please visit the reviewer sign up website and click the "Sign Up Now" button in order to create a profile and choose your areas of expertise (i.e. keywords) for the divisions or interest groups for which you want to review. The signup process should not take more than 5 minutes.

Thank you in advance for your participation. Without your time and hardwork as reviewers, there would not be an Annual Meeting Program.
