An evaluation involves telling the author what is good with a manuscript and what needs further work, but does not give instructions on how to fix it. You are responsible for fixing the problems described.
Your entire manuscript (MS) is read and evaluated not only for writing skills, but for content. The categories in the screenshot below are carefully noted and any problems described. This is a checklist form covering many variables, and each category also contains a section for comments. Detailed documentation, including suggestions and links for additional reading, when appropriate, will be included. The form runs a minimum of eight pages, and the report will be returned via PDF. You'll also receive a copy of your MS with comments inserted.
