Reviewers play a critical role in the publication process, the hallmark of scientific advancement. Yet, in many journals, determining the contribution of a paper is left to the reviewer's experience and good sense without providing structured guidelines. This lack of guidance to authors and reviewers increases uncertainty and variability in the usefulness of reviews. We propose an approach, based on the Information Quality (InfoQ) framework, that provides guideline scaffolding for the review process of applied research papers submitted for publication in scientific journals.
