Call For Reviewers

The Interdisciplinary Cardiac Arrest Research Review (ICARE) aims to highlight and disseminate high quality cardiac arrest research. The goals of the review are to illustrate best practices, stimulate additional research, and promote further professionalization of field involving cardiac arrests.

Reviewers will be primarily responsible for performing the screening, scoring, and writing up of individual reviews. They will be selected initially on their applications and will be given the opportunity each year thereafter to continue in their role. Reviewers will be designated as junior reviewers during their first year on the review, and as senior reviewers each year thereafter.

  • This review is a collaborative effort between a team of approximately 7 editors and 40 reviewers.
  • This requires a great deal of ongoing communication in order to ensure that everyone is working in concert. As such, it is expected that reviewers will check their email at least daily during the course of the review to ensure they are kept abreast of any new developments.
  • Time Commitment: ~20-30 hours from October 2019 – May 2020

Reviewers will be assigned to one of the 7 ICARE categories:

1. Epidemiology & Public Health (EPH)
2. Prehospital Resuscitation, Technology & Care Processes (PRE)
3. In-Hospital Resuscitation & Post-Arrest Care Processes (IN)
4. Prognostication & Outcomes (PRO)
5. Pediatrics (PED)
6. Basic Science & Pharmacology (BSP)
7. Interdisciplinary Guidelines & Reviews (GL).

Deadline for submission of requests is September 8, 2019.

Preference will be considered, however reviewers may be asked to join a different category based on availability and area of expertise.
