7. Writing the Review


Qualities of a Good Review

Effective peer review is…

  • Succinct but thorough. Constructive and well-organized commentary is crucial to improving scientific research.
  • Constructive. Notes and requests that have a direct impact on the quality of any manuscript’s final version.
  • Organized and specific.  Although the editors may summarize and synthesize comments from other reviewers alongside yours, they can only work with what you provide.
  • Supported and actionable.  Providing supporting evidence from the manuscript and giving actionable notes are some of the most common challenges for peer reviewers.
