Peer review is an essential element of scholarly publishing. The quality of every article printed in this journal and others depends on the in-depth, informative, and authoritative insights of expert reviewers. To support our reviewers, Academic Medicine has launched a Peer Reviewer Resources project. In the coming months, we will share resources and tutorials that include: questions that every review should answer, suggestions for an appropriate level of scrutiny and critique, advice on collegiality and tone, and practical tips for preparing a review.
In a series of blog posts, some of our top reviewers will share their techniques for writing clear, concise, and helpful reviews. Check back each Thursday over the next few months for a new post in the series. Share your feedback in the comments or via Twitter. Let us know what peer reviewer resources you’d like to see.
