Peer review reports for Review articles should be approached slightly differently than for regular articles. In addition to the overall Reviewer Guidelines for AMS Journals, please consider the following points:
- Being a Review, the manuscript does not necessarily need to have original content. But, the content of the Review should present the work in a manner in which it has not been synthesized previously. Does the Review, through its synthesis, bring new perspective to the topic?
- Does the Review provide a comprehensive breadth across the topic, rather than being narrowly focused around one particular group of researchers or a small number of groups?
- Is the Review timely?
- Is the scope of the Review well defined?
- Where relevant, does the Review lay out future research opportunities?
- Where relevant, does the Review portray controversies and conflicts accurately and from a balanced perspective?
- Where relevant, does the Review describe the limitations and strengths of previous research?
