Peer-review: some tips for doing it well

Liz Halcomb @LizHalcomb Editor, Nurse Researcher

Peer-reviewed journals rely on reviewers to provide critical appraisals of submitted papers to determine their suitability for publication. Editors decide whether a paper fits the journal scope and quality, but the peer-reviewer’s words help decide whether it is published. Many reviewers have not undertaken education or training about peer-review, so reflecting on the peer-reviewers’ role and how they can positively contribute to the scholarly literature can improve the process for all.
