Reviewer Importance

Peer review is the independent assessment of a research paper by experts in the field. Its purpose is to evaluate a manuscript’s quality and suitability for publication. The comments of carefully selected reviewers are essential in guiding the J-TICH’s decision on a manuscript.

J-TICH depends on reviewers who test and refine each article before publication. To establish and sustain peer review integrity, J-TICH makes sure reviewers have the right resources to carry out a peer review task efficiently and effectively.

If you are a J-TICH reviewer or are interested in being one, please read the following resources:
