Peer review

When reviewing, don’t be obnoxious. Acknowledge good stuff. Be constructive.

When reviewing for a grant or something new, always be sure to check what is the expected format of the review report. Starting from the final format can save a ton of time. Actually, start reviewing a paper by start writing the review — thinking about the final product from the beginning — may work well.

When on the receiving end, don’t just dismiss the reviews. Try to really understand what the review meant.
