為何要審閱? Why referee?
如果您的行程緊湊,很容易就會拒絕審閱的請求,但基於一些非常合理的原因,您應該接受審閱:
• 以您本身的專業知識幫助作者改進論文。
• 讓作者知道有其他文獻可提供有用的比較或方法說明。
• 在嚴謹的過程中,協助確保只發表最佳研究成果。
• 讓您知悉目前學科內新興的研究。
When your time is stretched it’s tempting to say no to requests to referee, but there are a number of very valid reasons why you should accept:
• Help the author to improve the paper – in the light of your own professional expertise.
• Make the author aware of any additional literature that may provide useful comparison, or clarification of an approach.
• Assist in a rigorous process to ensure only the best research is published.
• Maintain your awareness of current research emerging within the discipline.

 

調查期刊內容 Investigate the journal’s content
您已同意審閱一篇論文,那麼下一步該怎麼做呢?從造訪期刊首頁開始,瞭解該期刊平常的內容和出版社的風格,協助確定所審查的論文是否適合該期刊。請參閱投稿須知 (Instructions for Authors),瞭解論文是否符合該期刊的投稿標準(例如篇幅、範圍和呈現方式)。
You’ve agreed to referee a paper, so what should you do next? Start by visiting the journal homepage to get a sense of the journal’s usual content and house style to help decide whether the paper being reviewed is suitable. Refer to the Instructions for Authors to see if the paper meets the submission criteria of the journal (e.g. length, scope and presentation).

 

評量 Make an assessment
填寫審查問題或評分表,指出論文的相對優點或缺點。請記住,作者將樂於接受您的正面反饋以及建設性的批評。要問的關鍵問題為:該論文是否為原創?對現有文獻的相對貢獻是否足夠?該論文對期刊的讀者群而言是否有趣?
Complete the review questions or score sheet to indicate the relative strengths or weaknesses of the paper. Remember that authors will welcome positive feedback as well as constructive criticism from you. Key questions to ask: Is the paper original? Is the relative contribution made to the existing literature good enough? Will the paper be interesting to the readership of the journal?

 

建議 Make a recommendation
讀過論文並評量其品質後,您需向編輯建議出版與否。應該採用該論文嗎?應修改後再交稿?還是應退稿重新修訂?提供一些適合傳達給作者的意見,讓作者有機會就任何不清楚的地方加以說明,並進一步闡述意見。如果您有時間,請針對如何改善論文呈現的明確性、簡潔性和整體品質向作者建議。確認您是否覺得論文的趣味性與其篇幅相當。如果您建議縮短,若能指出您認為需要縮短的特定部分,對作者將有所助益。
Once you’ve read the paper and have assessed its quality, you need to make a recommendation to the editor regarding publication. Should it be accepted? Revised and resubmitted? Rejected pending revision? Supply some comments suitable for transmission to the author as an opportunity to seek clarification on any unclear points and for further elaboration. If you have time, make suggestions as to how the author can improve clarity, succinctness, and the overall quality of presentation. Confirm whether you feel the subject of the paper is sufficiently interesting to justify its length. If you recommend shortening it, it is useful to the author(s) if you can indicate specific areas where you think that shortening is required.

 

無法審閱? Unable to referee?
您不可能接受每一個論文審閱邀約。在這種情況下,如果您能推薦一位可取代您的專家或您信任其意見之人士,將會非常有幫助。如果您無法完成對論文的報告,請儘快通知編輯室,以免延誤審閱程序。
It won’t be possible for you to accept every invitation to referee. In this situation it is very helpful if you are able to recommend an alternative expert or someone whose opinion
you trust. If you are unable to complete your report on a paper then inform the editorial office as soon as possible so that the refereeing process is not delayed.
