A step-by-step guide to peer review: a template for patients and novice reviewers
Salmi L, Blease C. A step-by-step guide to peer review: a template for patients and novice reviewers. BMJ Health & Care Informatics 2021;28:e100392. doi: 10.1136/bmjhci-2021-100392
The peer review template for patients and novice reviewers is a series of steps designed to create a workflow for the main components of peer review. While relatively novel, patient peer review has the potential to change the healthcare publishing paradigm. It can do this by helping researchers enlarge the pool of people who are welcome to read, understand and participate in healthcare research. Academic journals who are early adopters of patient peer review have already committed to placing a priority on using person-centred language in publicly available abstracts and focusing on translational and practical research.
