I’ve recently attended a webinar by the editors of the Journal of Marketing on writing efficient peer reviews.
On the basis of that seminar, I’ve created a Word template, encompassing these five sections:
- Synopsis of the paper
- Evaluation of contribution
- Major conceptual and methodological weaknesses and recommendations
- Evaluation of readability
- Minor comments and suggestions
While I did implicitly gave feedback along these dimensions on papers I have reviewed in the past, the proposed structure did add more clarity to my reviews. Maybe also to yours? Feel free to use and modify it. Download the template here!
