Why do peer review?
Peer review is a process of subjecting research methods and findings to the scrutiny of other experts in the same field. It is one of the most important means for editors to judge whether a manuscript submitted is worthwhile to publish in a journal or not, and prevent dissemination of irrelevant findings and unacceptable views. Chinese Medical Sciences Journal relies on peer reviewers to provide clear, unbiased, timely, and respectful comments to our authors and editorial team, in order to select manuscripts for the journal with high quality and significant relevance. Our editors relay comments to authors in a way that encourages them to improve their papers.
