Refereeing a journal article

Hyndsight

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.
