Peer reviews lead to $15,000 donation for cancer patient education initiatives

Thursday, September 14, 2017

As part of an initiative to encourage high quality peer review with a quick turnaround, the Journal of the National Cancer Institute offered a donation on behalf of each reviewer who completed a high quality review in 7 days or less.

From June 2016 to May 2017, 166 reviewers were up for the challenge. Dr. Carolyn Gotay was one of the reviewers who participated. As a result of the reviewers’ efforts, nearly $15,000 was donated to cancer patient education initiatives.
