How to Review a Scientific Paper
Dr. James Rutkowski, AAID’s Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Oral Implantology, will present a course for those interested in reviewing scientific papers.
This course will teach students how to review a paper for a scientific journal, using the Journal of Oral Implantology as an example. The course will include an overview of the submission, review, and publication process, emphasizing the purpose and goal of peer review. Topics addressed will include qualifications of a good reviewer, what to look for in each section of a manuscript, and the types of comments which should be made both to the journal editors (sometimes called the “cover letter”) and to the manuscript authors (sometimes called the “referee's report”).
Also discussed will be issues of etiquette and confidentially, and the benefits of reviewing.
