Cochrane Corner

Usually medical journals are loaded with scholorly scientefic research articles and these journals offer very little to an ordinary reader. We are starting a new section in KMJ where very high quality research by Cochrane network will be presented as plain language summary on topics of public interest

Peer Review Process

KMUJ is a PEER REVIEWED journal following single blind peer review system. KMUJ is having a panel of peer-reviewers with diversity in knowledge, viewpoint and expertise in relevant specialties.


I. The first responsibility of reviewers is to evaluate manuscripts critically but constructively and to prepare detailed comments about the research and the manuscript to help authors improve their work. The reviewers have to assess the manuscript according to the reviewers proforma sent to each reviewer along with the manuscript. The evaluation should include

• assessments of the originality and importance of the research;

• the design of the study;

• the methods of study, including analytic and statistical methods;

• the presentation of the results;

• possible confounding; the strength of the conclusions; and

• the overall quality of the manuscript.

II. The second responsibility is to make recommendations to the editor regarding the suitability of the manuscript for publication in that journal. Reviewers may be asked to write some narrative comments about the manuscript that support their recommendation to the editor regarding acceptance or rejection. They also can be asked to grade some characteristics of the manuscript, such as originality, quality, accuracy, readability and interest to readers, or to complete detailed questionnaires about these qualities and even assign a priority score.

III. Reviewers should declare to the editor any potential conflicts of interest with respect to the authors or the content of a manuscript they are asked to review, and in most instances when such conflicts exist should decline to review the manuscript.

IV. Other responsibilities of reviewers include treating the manuscript as a confidential document and completing the review promptly. Reviewers should not show the manuscript to anyone else without the express consent of the editor.

V. Reviewers should not make derogatory comments about the manuscript in their comments for the authors. If reviewers do make such comments, the editor may choose to edit the comments or even withhold all the reviewer’s comments from the authors.

VI. Reviewers must not make any use of the work described in the manuscript.

VII. Reviewers should not communicate directly with authors or even identify themselves to authors, except by signing their reviews.

VIII. The editor should provide guidance to the reviewers, particularly new reviewers, regarding how the editor wishes the reviewers to evaluate the manuscript and how the reviewers should meet their dual responsibility of providing constructive comments for the author and advice to the editor.

VIII. Reviewers should meet the agreed-upon deadline (usually 4 weeks) for manuscript review and should respond to the reminders if sent any.


I. The editor will establish a reviewer database that includes information about the expertise of each reviewer as well as addresses and other contact information.

II. The editor may identify potential reviewers on the basis of personal knowledge of the topic or from among the authors of references in the manuscript, the membership of the professional societies, colleagues at affiliated institutions, or computer searches of databases such as PubMed, Medline , Publon etc or by asking for names from reviewers who decline to review the manuscript (see below).

IV. Authors may suggest reviewers for their manuscript, whether invited to do so by the editor or not. The editor may choose to use one or more of these reviewers, but are under no obligation to do so. (Authors may ask that certain people not be asked to review their manuscript, but editors are not obligated to accept these requests either).

V. The editor should ask reviewers, by telephone, fax or e-mail, if they are willing to review a particular manuscript, and give them a date that the review is due at the editorial office (usually 3 to 4 weeks), rather than simply sending the manuscript to the reviewer. As the same time, the editor can ask for the names of others who might review the manuscript should the person initially contacted decline.

VI. The editor is responsible for keeping track of reviewers, and taking steps to make sure reviews are completed in a timely manner. Each peer review is rated by the editor assigned to the manuscript and stored with the reviewer’s profile in the Rapid Review reviewer database. This rating becomes part of the reviewing history of each peer reviewer, and can be viewed by the editors as they select potential reviewers for future manuscripts. The reviewer database also contains information on the reviewers’ areas of expertise; the number of previous invitations to review and number accepted; dates of submitted reviews, and days taken to produce reviews. Reviewers who consistently decline invitations or who write brief unhelpful reviews are eventually removed from the database.

VII. To avoid overworking reviewers, each reviewer will be asked to evaluate no more than one manuscript per month. Reviewer has the right to decline the review due to any reason.

VIII. If a reviewer does not complete a review on a timely basis, the editor should proceed with evaluation of the manuscript. He can make a decision to accept or reject the manuscript based on the comments and recommendations of another reviewer(s) or his own evaluation of the manuscript, or by seeking additional review.


• Each reviewer may be rewarded by being publicly thanked for reviewing in the journal each year and will be given free copies of journal.

Reviewer may claim the credit of review, after getting registered as reviewer on






Peer review process is an important task and reviewers interested in improving their reviewing skills are recommended to consult Publons Academy, offering a free practical peer review training course on its website https://publons.com/community/academy
