Peer reviews help the Jurimetrics Editorial Board decide whether manuscripts are publishable and provide authors with valuable feedback to improve their manuscripts. If you believe the paper under review should not be published, you may limit your comments to the reasons for such a view. If you believe that the paper is of publishable quality, then it is important your suggestions for revision are more substantive and geared towards improvement of the manuscript.
Your report and recommendation should be e-mailed to the editor who requested your review or to the Managing Editor at Jurimetrics@asu.edu. Please use Microsoft Word if you are attaching your report in a separate file. The report will be cut and pasted as needed to transmit the report to the author, while preserving referee anonymity.
Any remarks you wish to make that you do not want the author to see should be separate from your actual report (e.g., in the body of the email providing your report in Microsoft Word form). Alternatively, you may clearly indicate in the Microsoft Word document that you do not want the author to see a specific comment. Referees should complete their reviews within three weeks.
Your comments should be specific and seek to answer any of the following questions that are relevant to the article you are reviewing:
Obviously not all these questions will be relevant to all papers.
Refereeing is time consuming, and the editors greatly appreciate your contribution of time and effort to improve Jurimetrics and the literature surrounding the nexus of law, science, and technology more generally. We are indebted to our conscientious referees and thank you for your help.
