• Peer Review

    Quality peer reviews help us to select articles that our readers value and to maximize the usefulness of each article we publish.

    Submitted manuscripts selected for peer review undergo a double-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 additional family physicans or others with expertise or interest in that content area.

    Become a reviewer

    If you would like to become a peer reviewer for FPM, please fill out the FPM Peer Reviewer Survey and return it to fpmedit@aafp.org along with an up-to-date CV. 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 follow up within two weeks.

    Obtain CME for peer review

    Review of manuscripts for journals listed in Medline, including FPM, may be claimed for CME credit. The AAFP allows AAFP members to self-report CME credits for each manuscript review they provide, with a maximum of 100 credits earned per three-year reelection cycle. Credit should be claimed commensurate with the length of time it takes to review. To report the credit, go to the AAFP's CME Reporter. From there, select Scholarly Activity under Report Self-Directed Learning Activities. Alternatively, you may download a Reporting Form to report CME by mail.
