About Manuscript Reviewers

Manuscript Reviewers review manuscripts which have been submitted to the Editor for publication. Reviewers provide sound critical analysis of the articles and make recommendations regarding the article's contribution to the field and whether or not it should be published. See Reviewer Guidelines for more information.

Student Manuscript Reviewers

A new feature of Family Relations is the inclusion of Student Manuscript Reviewers. Individuals who are advanced doctoral students are invited to become manuscript reviewers and we will develop a separate pool for this purpose.

This is an opportunity for graduate students in fields associated with the journal to gain experience reviewing manuscripts. It will be good practice not only in reviewing, but in how to better prepare their own manuscripts for submission to various journals.

Student reviews will be sent to authors along with the other reviewers' feedback and will receive copies of the other reviews. Once comfortable with reviewing, these reviewers will be merged into the general Family Relations review pool. For more information about becoming a student reviewer, email the editorial office.
