Review examples

Featured peer reviews

Below are a few of Peerage of Science peer reviews with high PEQ-scores, featured as examples of what good but critical peer review looks like.

As the manuscripts under review are not yet published, the manuscript title and some peer review content is censored.

Note that these peer reviews are only from the first stage of the process and therefore not Reviewer’s final judgement about the manuscript – Authors revise and improve their manuscripts after receiving the reviews (and use the PEQ scores to judge what to focus on), upload a revised version, and then the revised manuscript is given both quantitative and written final evaluation by the Reviewers.

Peer reviews are featured with permission from the reviewers.
