REYES B, Humberto; ANDRESEN H, Max  and  PALMA H, Joaquí­n. The manuscripts’ review process in Revista Medica de Chile and its peer-−reviewers during the year 2013. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2014, vol.142, n.7, pp.909-913. ISSN 0034-9887.

Mainstream journals, whether printed or electronic, are characterized −among other standards− by the use of external peer review to critically assess those manuscripts that have been submitted for publication. The editors usually rely on peer reviewers’ reports although their decisions are independent and usually final. The mission of Revista Médica de Chile includes the education of authors by guiding and stimulating them to improve their manuscripts before its acceptance and publication. Therefore the criticism, advice, and specific suggestions contained in peer reviewers’ reports are a crucial tool to fulfill this mission. The present article indicates that during the year 2013, 422 persons participated as peer−reviewers of one or more manuscripts. Their names are listed in recognition of their voluntary contribution to the quality of this journal.
