Learning peer review: Is jumping into the “deep end” the best approach?

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • Peer review is the essence of scholarship, embodying unique disciplinary expertise and the altruism to painstakingly enhance a manuscript for an anonymous author. In fact, peer review has been termed “a gift of uncompensated time from scientists to whom time is a precious commodity” (Scott-Lichter & Editorial Policy Committee, 2012, p. 5). Peer review is a learned skill evolving as scholars and clinicians become comfortable in their “professional skins.” And, like all learned skills, peer review must begin somewhere, with novice skills preceding expertise. Given the critical nature of peer review to advance disciplinary art and science, it is remarkable that formal education in this area is largely absent.
