Substantive reviews involve a critical reading of and in-depth commentary on the manuscript. Drawing on the reviewer's knowledge of the literature and current practice in the subject area, these reviews examine the basic premises of the paper, evaluate the methods and analyses used, comment on the contribution the paper makes to the existing literature and to our general understanding of the topic, etc. We ask that substantive reviews be completed in 2 weeks.
