Daži ieteikumi par žurnāla publikācijas recenzēšanu

Specific questions to consider in your evaluation include:

  1. Does the manuscript present a specific, easily identifiable advance in knowledge? Is it applicable and useful to the profession?
  2. Has the information already been published elsewhere, either wholly or in part?
  3. Is the subject matter within the scope of the journal? Or is it better suited to another journal?
  4. Do the title and abstract accurately describe the contents? Does the abstract include all of the main findings of the study?
  5. Is the review of literature limited to that framing the new knowledge? Are all references pertinent and complete?
  6. Is the methodology sufficiently well explained that someone else knowledgeable about the field could repeat the study?
  7. Is each figure and table necessary to the understanding of the conclusions? Can any be omitted without compromising the paper's message?
  8. Are the results soundly interpreted and related to existing knowledge on the topic?
  9. Are the conclusions sound and justified? Do they follow logically from data presented?
  10. Do all elements of the manuscript relate logically to the study's statement of purpose?
  11. Can the paper be shortened without compromising its message?

You may be required to make a manuscript evaluation on a scale of 1 - 5, as follows:

  • 1 Poor
  • 2 Below average paper/not worthy of an award
  • 3 Average paper; possibly, but not likely, of award caliber
  • 4 Above average/possible award quality
  • 5 Exceptional/award quality
