PEER REVIEW/CLINICAL CONSULTANCY NETWORK The JoPM has a network of persons available to provide advice and undertake peer review of articles. Material that appears in the Best Practice and, as appropriate, the Clarion Call sections will have been subject to peer review.

Authors are not informed of the name(s) of Peer Reviewers. Peer Reviewers are required to declare any conflicts of interest they have regarding a particular manuscript and to recuse themselves if these could complicate their review or inappropriately bias their opinion. Manuscripts are treated as confidential.

Peer Reviewers provide advice to the Editor-in-Chief, who is ultimately responsible for the selection of all content.
