Refereeing a journal article

I’ve written briefly on this before. For an excellent and more detailed discussion of what is involved, there is a series of excellent posts on Pat Thomson’s blog:

  1. Refereeing a journal article part 1: reading
  2. Refereeing a journal article part 2: making a recommendation
  3. Refereeing a journal article part 3: writing the feedback

If every reviewer followed her advice, my life as an editor would be much easier, and the quality of research would be improved.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I noticed a significant increase in traffic which came via your blog. I’m also pleased it made cross disciplinary sense. Pat Thomson.
