The address on how to survive the review process is very educative. How I wish I would get it in text.
Very encouraging comments and observations given. However, some reviewers ignore the good practices of;1. giving the basis of their criticisms and just rubbish the entire manuscript. 2. The fail to give suggestion on the way forward to the authors to improve their publications or at best to suggest relevant literature to them. Reviewer, may you work towards encouraging people to publish.

really use full suggestions for a and real time problem, which i also faced time and again. however, the point i want to make about the circulating the paper prior to submitting the paper for review is that i have observed a common practice that if you give you paper to some one who is expert of the field the copy the martial or methods, give harsh comments or discourage you as much as you through your paper out of the window and they use your material and methods and make a paper by their own and get it published.

being a research reviewer and being in connect with a number of individuals working as a reviewer, one problem that i have experienced is that many of the reviewers don’t even read the manuscript and they just accept or reject the article by reading the name and even the made the decision by their general observation about the research topic with out going through the piece of paper.

another thing that i observed is that many times the reviewer who don’t have the full expertise in the filled of certain field of study accepts to review the manuscripts and the just use to made the decisions to reject the paper even what out knowing what the researcher is talking about.
i would like to know in such situations what can a researcher do to get his work publish.
