Recommendations for Reviewing a Journal

1. Review the journal articles published in the journal over the past two years.

  • Do the articles follow established principles for reporting of research?
  • How is the scientific quality of the articles?
  • How is the editorial quality of the articles?

2. Review the journal information on the website.

  • Are the scope and aims of the journal clear?
  • Who is the Editor-in-Chief?
  • Who are the members of the editorial board?

3. If in doubt, ask your Librarian.
