JOM Peer Reviewers
Peer reviewers are physicians, scientists, and other healthcare professionals who critically evaluate the scientific quality
and clinical significance of research submitted to the The Journal of Osteopathic Medicine (JOM) for publication. When a peer reviewer agrees to review a manuscript, he
or she is sent a peer review form to guide his or
her critique of a manuscript, from ensuring that
methods are clearly described to grading the manuscript's originality,
and relevance to osteopathic medicine. The JOM has basic guidelines available for peer reviewers. Typically, a peer reviewer is called on twice per year to review a manuscript that is relevant to the peer reviewer's areas
of interest or expertise. All peer reviewers are invited to complete the JOM's peer review module, which takes approximately 30 minutes.
Manuscripts submitted to the JOM are reviewed by 2 or more peer reviewers. The JOM is proud to acknowledge and thank these experts in print every year, as it did in the 2018 annual list of peer reviewers.
Physicians, faculty members, and others within the healthcare professions are encouraged to register a new user account on the JOM's online manuscript tracking system if they are interested in becoming peer reviewers for the JOM. Prospective peer reviewers can contact the JOM at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Osteopathic physicians who complete peer reviews are awarded 3 Category 1-B credits per completed review. The JOM runs CME reports quarterly.
