Tips and Best Practices from Academic Medicine’s Top Reviewers

Peer Reviewer Resources

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.
