A step-by-step guide to peer review: a template for patients and novice reviewers


As people with lived health experiences climb a ladder of engagement in patient–researcher partnerships, they may be asked to act as peer reviewers of academic manuscripts. However, many of these individuals do not hold professional training in medicine, healthcare or science and have never encountered the peer review process. Little guidance exists for patients and care partners tasked with reviewing and providing input on manuscripts in search of publication.

Join authors Liz Salmi (@TheLizArmy) and Charlotte Blease (@crblease) from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston and Harvard Medical School in conversation with Journal Club Chair Katie MacLure (@katiemaclure @BMJ_HCI @BCS_HealthScot) as they discuss the development and application of the review template. Have you tried the template? Your feedback would be very welcome during our discussions.
