To be a Reviewer

Do you want to be a reviewer?

Typically, reviewers are invited to conduct a review by a journal editor. Editors usually select researchers who are experts in the same subject area as the paper. However, if you think you would be a good reviewer for our journal you can always contact us: editor@ejgo.net.

What do reviewers do, and why?

Reviewers evaluate article submissions to journals, based on the requirements of that journal, predefined criteria, and quality, completeness and accuracy of the research presented. They provide feedback on the article and the research, suggest improvements and make a recommendation to the editor about whether to accept, reject or request changes to the article.

Reviewing is a time-intensive process – writing a review report can be almost as much work as writing a manuscript! However, it is very worthwhile for the reviewer as well as for the community. Reviewers:

ensure the rigorous standards of the scientific process by taking part in the peer-review system

uphold the integrity of the journal by identifying invalid research and helping to maintain the quality of the journal

fulfil a sense of obligation to the community and their own area of research

establish relationships with reputable colleagues and their affiliated journals and increase their opportunities to join an editorial board

reciprocate professional courtesy, as authors and reviewers often have interchangeable roles

researchers ‘repay’ the same courtesy they receive as authors.
