Writing Reviews

The following guide suggests a steps for writing a paper review. The structure should include the following
  • Summarize the paper
  • State the contributions (what they are , what was missed)
  • Novelity: Whats new , related work missed , related work invalidates the contribution
  • Make it constructive : "paper would be stronger if it does so and so"
  • Criticize the paper, not the work itself
  • Avoid flat assertions: "The description left me worried" rather than "not correct"
  • Its OK to be humorous
