Sample Reviews Written by the Editors
To illustrate the kinds of reviews our editorial team is looking for, the micro and macro editors have written reviews of hypothetical MAER submissions (the papers are actually “file-drawered” manuscripts obtained from the MAER). Although different editors use different styles when writing their reviews, all of the reviews conform to the guidelines described above.

  • o Click here to read the hypothetical micro submission
  • o Click here to read reviews written by the micro editors
  • o Click here to read the hypothetical macro submission
  • o Click here to read reviews written by the macro editors

Such evaluation will guarantee that the manuscript is high quality and is suitable for us to publish it.
Thank you for your effort!
