Review a Manuscript

Peer reviewers for Preventing Chronic Disease (PCD) evaluate manuscripts using PCD Manuscript Central. PCD Manuscript Central is a manuscript tracking system that allows authors to submit manuscripts and reviewers to evaluate manuscripts electronically. All PCD manuscripts are submitted and reviewed through this system. Reviewers log in to the system, read their assigned manuscripts, offer comments separately to authors and journal editors, and complete brief score sheets that include recommendations on whether or not to publish.

If you are interested in reviewing articles on any topic related to preventing chronic disease, please read our Call for Peer Reviewers. Peer reviewers selected to review a manuscript receive an e-mail confirmation, which includes a Manuscript Central log-in ID and password. More instructions on reviewing manuscripts through PCD Manuscript Central may be found at
