In particular, it will provide a guideline on how to efficiently produce informative, fair and critical analysis of research that results in reviews helpful for editors and authors. It will be given by the Editors-in-Chief of the American Journal of Physical Anthropology, Trudy Turner, and of the American Journal of Human Biology, William Leonard, and will be hosted by the Publisher at both journals at Wiley, Paul-Andre Genest.
