Peer review is a pillar in scientific progress. Scientists-as-reviewers assess manuscripts of scientists-as-authors with the central aims of correcting errors and improving quality. Contribution to peer review is voluntary and typically solicited only once one begins to publish. Given the central importance of peer review to science, it is unfortunate that it is often learned on-the-job. This chapter presents the basics of peer review and the important features of a useful review.

Keywords:   Double-blind review, signing reviews, reviewer report, scientific standards
