Thank you for your interest in joining the NEUROSURGERY Publications Resident Review Board.
To complete your application, you must complete and submit a mock peer review of an article recently published in Neurosurgery. If you have never written peer review in the past that is okay. I have included several resources below that may help you with your mock review.
All mock reviews must be submitted to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by February 9th, 2022. If you have any questions about the Resident Review Board or writing the mock peer review, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
Peer Review Resources
CNS Webinar - Manuscript Review: A Guide for Reviewers: Please use the promo code “RESREVIEW2021” for complimentary access to this course.
Wiley Publishing: “What is Peer Review?”: This is a concise overview of the peer review process and recommendations for how to complete a peer review.
Wolters Kluwer: “The peer-review process and journal authors”
Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology: This article published in 2006 in the Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology is a detailed review of the purpose of peer review and a guide for approaching the peer review process. Although it is a field only tangentially related to neurosurgery, the principles and recommendations in the article are broadly relevant to peer review in any scientific field.
