Soumya Upadhyay (Health Care Administration and Policy) as part of an interdisciplinary international team, published a paper titled "For Your Review: Insights from Seasoned Reviewers and Editors on the Peer-Review Process" in the Journal of Health Administration and Education, a journal by the the Association of University Programs in Health Administration. While Ph.D. programs teach doctoral students to critically assess research, often they do not formally or adequately prepare students for the act of reviewing manuscripts. More often, academics learn the process of conducting reviews by trial and error. Nevertheless, reviewing is a professional responsibility, an opportunity to engage with and serve the greater intellectual community, and a mechanism for becoming a better writer. By surveying editors of health care journals and collecting qualitative data from seasoned reviewers, this article provides health administration educators, doctoral students, post-docs, as well as junior and senior scholars, insights on the mechanics and normative expectations of reviewing manuscripts for health-related journals.
