I recall last week that Professor Galey was talking about how baseball (or was it softball?) would be a useful metaphor for peer review, or at least I think that’s what he said – my memory is hazy. Either way, this article provides a helpful way to think of peer review, and should be useful as people begin proofreading and submitting assignments!

Happy peer reviewing,
