In the interests of improving our review process and providing the best possible service to authors, we are forming a database of your reviewing preferences. Please take a minute to fill out the accompanying form so that you (a) do not receive more requests than you can handle, (b) receive only manuscripts in your chosen topic areas, and (c) can respond by e-mail if you so choose. We absolutely will not share this information with anyone under any circumstances. This form can also be used to request that you not be asked to review manuscripts.
By policy we do not share your information with any other person or business entity, with no exceptions. We will not use your phone except in the case of emergency. If you feel uncomfortable giving us particular pieces of information, then by all means leave those lines blank, with our sympathies! If you do not send your e-mail address, however, please be aware that we will not be able to send electronic manuscripts or an acknowledgement of your review submitted online.
Psychological Reports and Perceptual and Motor Skills have been operating for over 50 years. Our goal has been and is to serve the scientific community with an excellent editorial staff who are knowledgeable, consistent, and respectful, and with publications of the highest quality and lowest cost for subscribers. Our editors have among them 70+ years of experience. Our associate editors include many specialists, statisticians, clinicians, teachers, and experimentalists.
We strive to minimize the time between submission and editorial response, as well as provide rapid turn-around for revisions, so that time to publication for accepted manuscripts is as brief as possible. The help of our reviewers in this is essential. We ask our reviewers to return reviews within 5 weeks so that we can be timely in returning editorial responses to authors, such as yourselves. Scientific communication requires dedication from all parties, and we appreciate your efforts tremendously. Hopefully, using e-mail will be easier than finding a post box for some of you, so that you can spend the time you allot for reviewing on that task itself.
We will continue to change our procedures cautiously, in order to keep costs and unforeseen complications to a minimum. Please do send suggestions.
If you have reviewed for these Journals before, we extend our warmest thanks; if this is the first time we have requested a review, then please accept our great appreciation for your time and energy, and the thanks of your peers.
