The lower part of this page contains an outline for peer review articles that are critiques of articles that have NOT been submitted to any specific wiki journal. If you peer-review an article that IS submitted to a specific wiki journal, you must perform your peer review according to the rules for that journal. In particular, you MUST use the outline for peer review articles that is required by that journal.

If you use the outline for peer review articles that is on this page (see below), you will keep the contents of your peer review article on a single page. You cannot alter the elements of this outline for peer review articles in an attempt to avoid the required aspects of wiki peer review. Use of this outline will remind you to include the required aspects of wiki peer review.

When you start your article, be sure that you use the correct title for your article and that the name of the wiki page for your article is the same as the title. (Repeating: the name of the wiki page for your review article must match the title of your article.) Create Links and Pages
