Why is peer-review important?


As a peer-reviewer you are helping to advance science within your subject area by providing crucial feedback to authors. Your review is vital to improving the quality and scientific standard of papers submitted to and published in Veterinary Evidence, and so you are playing a very real part in progressing your area of research.

By taking on this role not only are you sharing your expertise with others, but you will also have the opportunity to read and critique new and emerging evidence and research, which will help you to improve your own writing and research skills - and by conducting a review you are also gaining CPD (see here for additional details).

Your review will also help authors improve their own writing as well as helping editors to make informed decisions on papers.
