PEER REVIEW, CRITICAL REVIEW AND WRITING OF MANUSCRIPTS

Rawleigh Howe

Abstract


Peer Review is generally considered as a necessary and essential component of the process of research dissemination and publication, yet one which is far from being efficiently, or even sometimes fairly implemented on a consistent uniform basis. Many have stressed the need to improve the process, yet there is still no consensus on whether or how the process should be modified (1-3). Although online guidelines are now available (4-5), in most cases peer reviewers have never received formalized guidance. It is generally assumed that researchers, once attaining a certain level of expertise in proposing, conducting and writing up their research for publication, basically “know how to do it”.
