Especially if you don’t have a lot of experience with a peer-review process this can be pretty daunting. A lot of people even report to me that they experienced a little bit of what they call impostor syndrome insofar as this feeling of Who am I to be asked to review somebody else’s work?

What is peer review and where does it fit in academia? Let’s say I’ve written an article and I want to get it published in an academic journal and hopefully a really good one with the high impact factor.

Step 1 – Download and read the entire article
Step 2 – Write a summary paragraph of the article
Step 3 – Make a list of all the sections
Step 4 – Make bulleted comments under each section heading
Step 5 – Submit it
