    • If a reviewer does not reply within 3 days of initial invitation, an automatically generated electronic reminder will be sent on days 3, 5, and final reminder on day 7.
  • Reviews must be thorough and contain a basic amount of information in order for the section editor to generate a composite review.
    • Critique of methodology (did the author incorporate engaging instructional methods)
    • Accuracy of subject matter
    • Statement of impact
    • Strengths
    • Significant limitations that were not addressed
    • Fatal flaws
    • Comment on clarity, brevity, grammar and spelling. If there are minor errors, please relate them in the review. If there are major errors as a whole, you may relate this fact without having to fix them line by line.

The journal will provide all reviewers with:

  • An annual update detailing the number of reviews performed over the preceding calendar year and an official letter of thanks on JETem letterhead for your academic record and promotion.
