Abstract

Using the principles of persona and shadow from Jungian psychology, the presentation describes how strong emotions expressed by reviewers in evaluating manuscripts may be examples of the projection of the reviewer's shadow onto the paper under review. According to principles of analytic psychology, awareness of one's shadow may lessen the likelihood and extent of its projection onto others (including onto authors and manuscripts under review).

Technology and resources used to create presentation: Camtasia 5.0, Powerpoint 2007, microphone, downloaded photos from internet.

Keywords: academic reviews, reviewer education, persona, shadow, Jungian psychology
