Professional Development Initiative: Reviewing

This initiative has three elements:


Review of reviews

Reviewers of papers may choose to receive a copy of the reviews written by other reviewers of the same papers that they reviewed. There is a tick box at the bottom of the review form where copies of the other reviews can be requested.
