The following chapter is about the experience of the peer-review process for early career researchers. It introduces readers to what it is like to have a manuscript rejected, as well as what it is like to receive a ‘revise and resubmit’, and most importantly, what to do from this point onwards in the academic process. The chapter is based on viewing dealing with rejection and critical thinking as an essential element in developing oneself as a scientific writer and emergent contributor to the peer-review process. More broadly, the chapter discusses the ways in which feed- back can be effective and ineffective in contributing to the process of academic writing and, finally, how criticism may be an unavoidable yet manageable part of this process. These themes are then integrated into a discussion on how key personal and institutional elements can support academic writing and being an effective peer reviewer, which are fundamental to the scholarly success of early career researchers.
