Random thoughts of an editor on peer review | Brian M. Lucey


As a graduate student nobody really teaches you how to become a peer reviewer, but eventually you find yourself on the receiving end of an editor's email asking you to review somebody's paper. For me, I was pretty okay with the substance of the paper (the editor knew me and my skillset well) but I just wasn't too sure what was expected of me and what a typical review looked like. A list like this probably would have been helpful.
