Providing conscientious and helpful peer review for scholarship under consideration for publication is one of the most important and least recognized forms of scholarly engagement. Hidden behind “blind” review processes or gestured to in passing on annual activity reports, the vital work of peer review too often goes unnoticed and remains undervalued. It would not, however, be an understatement to say that peer review is the very soil from which high quality scholarship grows, the place where ideas are refined and enhanced, revised and rendered more poignant, accessible, and capable of energizing enduring change. When the thoughtful, difficult, and complex practices of peer review go unrecognized, they languish. It becomes more difficult for editors to find willing reviewers, more frustrating to engage in the process of review, and more challenging for us to publish generative and compelling ideas.
