REVIEWER INFORMATION
The concept of reviewing is essential for maintaining quality in science publications. It is a voluntary task accepted by the scientific community as being in its overall best interest.

However, some academic institutions give credit to reviewers who do this task for international, PubMed-listed Journals. Should you require confirmation of a review done for the Cardiovascular Journal of Africa, please e-mail Elsabé on

For your guidance, the major attributes of our requirements for a review are:
  1. To focus on the content of the article not language usage, as this is dealt with by our language editors. However you may wish to indicate areas requiring improvement.
     
  2. To reflect on whether the article content contributes to the development of knowledge about cardiovascular disease. Also whether it has value for the clinicians practicing in Africa and other developing regions.
     
  3. To evaluate whether the conclusions made are substantiated by the evidence presented and should be further researched.
     
  4. Please indicate your evaluation as required using the grading system where 1 is the highest ranked level; descending to 2,3 4 and 5.
