On the evaluation of work (typically, a publication or grant proposal) by the author's peers. This includes: refereeing, which is often used to determine an academic paper's suitability for publication in a journal or conference; peer evaluation of teaching skills; peer review of research grant proposals; and post-publication review of a book or article, as is common in the field of mathematics.

The time for the second go-around is often the same as for the first go-around. So, if the journal allows reviewers 3 months for a review, you have to expect this much (at least) also for the review o …

I think there is nothing inherently wrong with contacting the reviewer given that he has volunteered his name (and uncommon but commendable step). That said, you need to remain aware that that doesn't …

The reviewers may not have understood why your approach is new or worthy. But that is not the reviewers fault, it is your failure to explain it well: if the reviewers don't understand it, other reader …

I'm writing this in my role as an editor: if I had assigned a younger colleague as a reviewer, and said colleague asked me for the other reviews because they want to learn what others see in a paper, …

I would not worry about the paper getting rejected one way or the other: The reviewers gave you a shorter proof, but did not suggest that the theorem is obvious or trivial. This isn't going to change …

It typically means that the paper has been received, has been put in the work queue of the editor, but the editor has not assigned reviewers. Or (in one system I know of), that the editor has not assi …

I don't know about such studies, but I have served on ~20 panels to review proposals. While I'm entirely willing to believe that multiple panels will not agree on the relative ordering of proposals, I …

It's the editor's call, and since you have no right to get your manuscript published, you don't really have a basis to ignore the editor's request -- if that's what the editor wants, then that's what …

It's hard to give good advice in a concise way about what makes for a good review. The thing is, one knows a good review if one sees one (and the opposite is true as well). So, with my students and po …

I've just taken to returning two documents when reviewing papers: One is my annotated PDF (created on a tablet) where I can use both margin notes if I want to comment on things, and handwritten note …

Many possible reasons, although there is of course no way of finding out which one applied here (if any at all): Editor E believes that, being big animals in the field, neither A nor B will have tim …

As an editor I've occasionally done this if I had conflicting reviews that I couldn't make sense of. In a case like this, you send these reviews to a trusted friend who knows the area better and say " …

In essence, people publish in journals for two reasons: Journals provide a relatively small number of central places where everything of interest is collected. As a consequence, it is (relatively) e …

My reading is that the associate editor has rejected the article and it just has to be formalized by either the editorial staff or the editor-in-chief. Prepare for an email with bad news :-(

To add to Bill's answer, most scientists would agree that it is not productive to try figuring out who a reviewer may be, and consciously avoid thinking about it too hard. I make that a point when tal …
