Editor's Notes

Our publisher, Wiley, has surveyed almost 3000 researchers worldwide on their peer reviewing experience and attitudes toward reviewer training and rewards. Among the key findings: most reviewers want more training, journal rank is important to reviewers, feedback from journals is a valued form of recognition, and reviewers want reviewing to carry more weight in their institutions' evaluation process. Read the full (open access) report here.  The responses to the survey questions are presented in graphical form here.
