Peer Review

Manuscripts submitted to FPM for publication undergo a blinded peer review. This review is completed by a panel made up of at least one FPM Editorial Advisory Board member and at least three other experts in that content area. Quality peer reviews help us to select articles that our readers value and to maximize the usefulness of each article we publish.

Review of manuscripts for journals listed in Medline, including Family Practice Management, may be claimed by AAFP members for up to 3 Prescribed credits per manuscript. Members may self-report this credit up to a limit of 45 Prescribed credits per three-year cycle. Members can claim credit for peer review by going to Report My CME. From there, select Peer Review under Individual Activities. Alternatively, you many choose Report by Mail to download a Reporting Form.

If you would like to become a peer reviewer for FPM please fill out the FPM Peer Reviewer Survey(2 page DOCX) and return it to fpmedit@aafp.org. If you have an up-to-date CV please send it at the same time. Having this information improves our ability to send you manuscripts on topics that your experience and practice type have best prepared you to review. The FPM Executive Editor will review your information and let you know within two weeks whether you’ll be added to our panel of reviewers.

For each article they are asked to evaluate, reviewers are asked to consider whether they have any relevant conflicts of interest. Those with conflicts of interest are instructed to not complete the review.
