Peer Review Resources for Authors and Reviewers

by | Sep 18, 2023

Peer review is the cornerstone of academic writing and publishing. That means most scholars will inevitably experience being on both the giving and receiving end of reviewer comments.

Despite this commonality, many aspects of the process can be confusing and misunderstood.

We’ve gathered some of our favorite peer review resources to shed some light on this scholarly practice and how we can make it better.

These articles will help you write better reviews and use the reviews you receive more productively.

They can also help you reflect on the peer review system as a whole, imagining ways the process can be more sustainable, equitable, and generous.
