1. What do you like most about being a reviewer for Biomaterials Science?
The opportunity to learn something exciting and new. I also enjoy having the opportunity to help the authors improve the quality of their manuscript.
2. What would you recommend to new reviewers to ensure their report is helpful?
A manuscript cannot solve all the problems in the field. So long as a manuscript can teach us something new and important, it is a good manuscript worthy of sharing with the community. Questions raised should be centered on the key points that the authors tried to convey in their manuscript. Even if you recommend rejection, please explain your rationale and provide constructive suggestions as to how the manuscript can be further improved.
