(for original research papers); c) Were the results substantial enough to consider publishable (or were only two or so variables presented or resulted so flawed as to render the paper unpublishable)?
  5. What is your initial impression? If the paper is:¬†a) Acceptable with only minor comments/questions: solid, interesting, and new; sound methodology used; results were well presented; discussion well formulated with Interpretations based on sound science reasoning, etc., with only minor comments/questions, move directly to writing up review; b)¬†Fatally flawed¬†so you will have to reject it: move directly to writing up review; c) A mixture somewhere in the range of ‚Äúrevise and resubmit‚ÄĚ to ‚Äúaccepted with major changes‚ÄĚ or you‚Äôre unsure if it should be rejected yet or not: It may be a worthy paper, but there are major concerns that would need to be addressed.
