Top 10 Things Reviewers Should NOT Say in a Review
This list from the Center for Scientific Review made me chuckle. The list provides advice to reviewers that includes 10 things they should not say when reviewing grants. Unfortunately, I have seen several of these comments on summary statements. The one I have seen the most is the "fishing expedition" comment. Sometimes, though, reviewers have to call a spade a spade. Some proposals (my own included) really do qualify to be called fishing expeditions.
