Thread: Reviewing a paper - no line numbers

Also noteworthy, it isn't blinded, as in I can see the authors' names. Never had that before but I just checked and this journal doesn't operate double blinded reviews. So the reviewer can see the author but they can't see us. I find it odd somehow, even though it is the journal's policy. It isn't influencing me but it is weird that I actually know the authors for sure (often you can guess anyway but still).

Thank you. Have emailed. Will see what response is. I am part way through it now but would prefer it if they could add page numbers. Man it is hot today.

I don't think I know what you mean unless you give some examples.

In my experience, just be yourself, as you always have been, and people will soon see that you are normal (or as normal as you were before).

Also maybe just explain that a PhD is just another degree or course - like a masters (sorry anyone who finds that offensive, but that is how I see it).

I should add... it's like a 40 page review so unless I am missing a trick this is going to be a bit of a nightmare when it comes to referring to certain places.

It seems a little bizarre that the journal for which I am reviewing a paper doesn't show line numbers... is it just me or is this incredibly unhelpful? Or rather, is there something I am missing here... some easy way to refer to a line of text without having to count the paragraphs or quote whole sentences...?

I think I am getting a little grumpy in the sweltering heat!

Yes that's true. I think I'd be tempted to go for the short paper though, if your priority is to get a paper out of this fairly quickly and in a great journal.

If you see it as a larger paper then put the work in, but you'll have to accept (as you're already aware) that it might not go in that journal. Do you have back up journals and would you be happy for it to go in one of those (hopefully) if you put in the work and it isn't accepted in your first choice?

I just took a look and realised that checklist is for reviewing empirical papers. I am looking for a similar checklist that can be used for reviewing a theoretical/conceptual review paper. I'm googling and will share on here if any luck. Please let me know anybody if you have such a checklist! Cheers!

Hi there

Does any one have any experience of reviewing a review paper? And if so do you have any advice?

It might seem like a dumb question, but I don't think there is a great deal of training or support on doing peer reviews (I've even come across a paper about this). I imagine it is something one gets better at with practice, but still there should be some guidance on it in my opinion. I've done one or two reviews, but not of actual review papers. Any advice on how to proceed?

Thanks

As long as you mentioned your supervisors' names before your dog's... :D

Hehe, sounds confusing! Mine was a bit similar! I had stopped working with one supervisor and had a new primary supervisor assigned and all sorts of confusion as well. I just acknowledged them all in what seemed like the best order. No point in accidentally offending somebody. They probably all did give at least a tiny bit of input at some stage. If not sure of what order to put them in, maybe base it on the order they would be listed as authors if you were to publish a paper from your thesis and they were all to be named on it. Hope that helps.

I am probably missing the point, but what's it for? It is just so you can more easily find someone's contact details? I have one I think.

I looked into this recently for a paper, and wherever I found the answer (probably APA manual) told me to do this:

"We did X, which was considered appropriate as it
was just short of the length of the shortest sample (J. Bloggs, personal communication,
August 27, 2015)."

And it was not listed in the references at the end, just in the text.

If you are referring to actual data then the best place to check might be a recently published meta-analysis. Often authors contact researchers for unpublished data and include it in their meta-analysis (if it is a very thorough one that is trying to account for publication bias and include all possible relevant data). If you can find a paper like this you can just copy how they cite the data and then whether and how they put it in the reference list at the end. It shouldn't be hard to find one.

Is your PhD funded? If so you may be able to apply for funding for the research assistant. I hired a research assistant for one of my PhD studies and was able to pay her at the typical rate (about £15 per hour), covered by my research budget. I had not stipulated that I would need an RA beforehand (ie when I wrote my proposal), but it was still OK to call the research council admin team and check with them, and then fill out the expenses form. If this is not an option with you then I'd be asking my research supervisor. Often they have a pot of money that can be used to help toward these things. They want the research produced to be high quality too. Hope this helps.
