Thanks again to all our peer reviewers for their invaluable contributions to the ongoing success of ACAMH’s journals. ACAMH wishes to encourage any potential reviewers who are thinking of joining the peer review process. In collaboration with our publishers at Wiley, the journal office is actively engaged in dialogues aimed at enhancing the diversity of our peer reviewer database. We are actively exploring a spectrum of ideas and initiatives, with plans to promptly integrate them into our journal procedures.

For those less familiar with the process, take a look at our general advice to reviewers below:

  • be fair – the process relies on your expertise so try to be objective and timely
  • be open – if you are unable to accept a request due to other commitments, lack of expertise, or a conflict of interest – it is always better to say than delay the process
  • be constructive – when you identify problems with the paper, try to suggest how they can be addressed
  • consider context – a good review examines both the scientific rigour of the paper and what it contributes to the field as a whole

We would also like to take this time to encourage any reviewers who are thinking of joining the peer review process. If you are an early career researcher, we would love to hear from you. If you are interested in reviewing papers for any of ACAMH’s journals, please get in touch with the Publications Team.
