Peer Review

Each article is assigned to one of the three editors who is not an author of the article. The article is then sent to two peer-reviewers (selected by the assigned editor with authors’ suggestions as needed) who then complete a brief electronic peer review form and submit it to the assigned editor. The assigned editor critiques the Tools for Practice article, reviews the peer reviewers’ comments, and provides directive feedback to the authors on content. Once the authors address issues raised by reviewers/editor, it is formatted for style and copy-edited, following which is is sent away for translation, before being published on the ACFP website in English and French, and mailed to over 30,000 family physicians and allied health care providers across Canada and internationally.
