How to Be a Good Scientific Manuscript Reviewer
If authors are the lifeblood of scientific publishing, journal reviewers are the vessels through which the blood runs. Journal editors relay on the expertise of reviewers to ensure that the papers they publish are scientifically sound, report on experiments that were carried in a manner that protected patients, human subjects or animals, and offer information that can be used to improve the life of patients everywhere. The role of journal reviewer is time-consuming, and at times frustrating. So, why agree to review a paper?
Skillful peer reviews represent a valuable contribution to the field of study. In fact, expert reviewers help advance science. Being asked to review manuscripts is evidence of professional reputation. Reviewing manuscripts creates an opportunity for professional advancement. Finally, prompt and effective reviews can lead to an invitation to join a journal’s editorial board or more.
Drawing on 10 years of experience as Associate Editor (Journal of Child Neurology, Pediatric Neurology) and 3 years as Editor-in-Chief (Seminars in Pediatric Neurology), Dr. Pedro Weisleder will share in this webinar the attributes that journal editors look for in a journal reviewer.
- Explain why reviewing scientific papers helps improve research and writing skills
