3. Before You Review

Invitation to Review

The Reviewer Invitation

If you are invited to review for an Optica Publishing Group journal, you will receive an invitation email like the one shown below.  It will contain basic information about the manuscript that the editor would like you to assess, along with a link to the journal's review criteria. The Review Request link at the top of the invitation will direct you to the Review Request Form on the Prism website, where you can access more detailed information and select whether to agree or decline to perform the review. Please respond promptly so that the editor can quickly contact another reviewer if needed.
