Peer review report

Peer review service provides authors with a thorough and critical review of the content of the paper, just like a journal peer review. The review addresses (at least) the following issues: do study aims logically follow from background information, are aims stated clearly, do aims and methods concur, is the study design valid, are statistical analysis up to date and adequate, are results well presented, are results interpreted correctly (no overinterpretations, no oversights), are conclusions supported by results (no overstatements), are all important issues covered in discussion, is the flow of arguments logical, does the abstract present the main results, is the title appropriate for the paper. The review report also comments on originality and impact of the paper. The review can subsequently be discussed by email.
