An interesting read about what reviewers want

Animal ecology recently put out an interesting post about what reviewers want (see the link below). Particularly interesting that so may respondents to the survey though a major shake up was needed (74%) – I couldn’t agree further. Also I found training to be a peer reviewer was an interesting idea and should be mandatory. No surprises that people reviewing high ranking journals are more likely to accept manuscripts and spend more time on them. I also find it strange that scientists find the idea of being paid to review articles weird – why should the companies simply get to profit off the authors and the readers without giving any of it back to the community? I guess that unfortunately the consequences of doing so are likely to lead to increased publication costs which would be annoying.
