For Reviewers

Manuscripts submitted to Proceedings of the Nature Research Society (PNRS) are reviewed by at least two experts. Reviewers are asked to evaluate the Level of Innovation/Advancement and Quality of Written English of the manuscript and to provide a recommendation to the external editor on whether a manuscript can be accepted, requires revisions or should be rejected.

We ask invited reviewers to:

  • accept or decline any invitations quickly, based on the manuscript title and abstract;
  • suggest alternative reviewers if an invitation must be declined;
  • request an extension in case more time is required to compose a report.

As part of the assessment, reviewers will be asked:

  • to rate the Level of Innovation/Advancement and English level of the manuscript;
  • to provide an overall recommendation for the publication of the manuscript;
  • to provide a detailed, constructive review comment;
