Paper Review Ponder

December 31, 2009

What’s up with these journal editing/reviewing systems that email the reviewers when the decision has been made but don’t append the reviews. Requiring the reviewer to go back and log into the reviewer site and make a few clicks decreases the numbers who are going to read over the other reviewer comments.
That’s bad. You should always read over the comments of the other reviewers as a continuing education / calibration of your own reviewing behavior. Plenty of journals just send you the Editor Decision and reviews as the notification. Easy. Peasy.
