Final peer review…um… review

December 7, 2011

For mine, I didn’t get a lot of comments, and that’s okay with me. I’m confident in myself as a writer, so I know I shouldn’t get an overwhelming amount of comments in regard to my paper. But since mine are usually a “scaled down” version of what I normally turn in, I get a lot of comments like “just write more about the readings and you’ll be fine!” I think I’ve gotten one of those with every review.

What I really look for in peer review is grammatical stuff. I’ve said before you can never have enough eyes on your work, and I find that true. But it’s when people are wrong that I get irked. It doesn’t happen that often, but I can recall having to comment on someone else’s comment that they were wrong.

Overall, I find peer reviewing to be helpful. If you can make only one fix to your work as a result of it, why not keep on with it? Yes, it can be annoying to do, but all reviewing is at one point. I’m all for people looking at my work and suggesting things. If I don’t like a suggestion, I just won’t use it. But someone might have a good idea or point out something obvious that I’ve missed, so in that aspect I’ve found it beneficial.
