For many of us who work in peer review management for medical journals, the ability to work behind the scenes and not attract attention may be a welcome benefit. Yet we do find ourselves getting our fingerprints all over the peer review and publication process. At Review Without Peer, we recognize that in providing managing editor services, we have opportunities every step of the way for improving the peer review process and the final published product. In fact, that’s what we’re here for.
