Peer Review Guidelines

Please provide your feedback on the chapter by responding to the enclosed questions with as much detail as possible. The feedback can be given all in one go or in intervals, as you wish. Other reviewers will give their feedback online so you can provide comments on their feedback too.

The questions are meant to guide your feedback, you don’t need to answer all of them. These comments will be used by the authors to make revisions to their chapter, so please try to give your feedback in a constructive and friendly manner. You are also encouraged to attach the original document with tracked changes if you have specific edits and in-text comments.
