process of peer review psychology
The aim of this program is to offer a quick, constructive and fair peer-review process, to engage reviewers actively into the publishing process and to provide mentorship to researchers (especially early career) to provide meaningful and constructive reviews to their peers.
If you would like to register as a volunteer reviewer for Methods in Psychology, you may do so by choosing ‘Register Now’ option here.

The peer-review process is an invaluable aspect of any scientific community. We aim to adopt a peer-review approach that will inspire meaningful dialogue within our community at SFU, and we encourage you to participate in this dialogue by submitting accessible and engaging work for your peers. Below we outline the process by which we review submissions. The initial evaulation and peer review stages are both double-blind reviews with neither authors nor reviewers named.
