The manuscript review process is the cornerstone to scientific inquiry and results reporting. As a citizen of the scientific community, it is important that you participate in this process and that you take your responsibility seriously.
"Good scientific practice with clear hypotheses--including experimental designs with solid positive and negative controls--should eliminate most errors that might send your research group down a wrong path."
"The issue of how much of your salary a university will require you to recover on grants is critical to the overall support that your department/institution will give you during your career, and therefore should be near the top of the list of factors when deciding on taking a position."
"The key now is to know how to move forward, to understand the appropriate roles of the reviewer and the reviewed, and to determine how to respond to critiques so that you get that grant funded, eventually, or that paper accepted."
