We report the results of a literature review and a survey of researchers, with an emphasis on co-reviewing and ‘ghostwriting’. The literature review identified 36 articles that addressed the involvement of early-career researchers in peer review, most of them about early-career researchers and their advisors co-reviewing manuscripts for the purposes of training.
