Articles in the Canadian Geriatrics Society Journal of CME undergo a peer review process. The first step is an internal peer review by a member of the Editorial Board to determine if the article is clinically sound, of high quality and of potential interest to the readership. If the article meets these criteria, then it is sent for external review by an expert in the field covered in the article. A template to assist reviewers is provided.
