Case 86. Citing Work Known through the Review Process

Situation

Beth Rosen in working on a project involving social policy in housing. Because of her reputation in this area of research, she is sent a manuscript that deals with a similar issue in another country. Beth does the review and returns it to the editorial office. However, she is very interested in contacting the author of the piece to discuss shared problems and, perhaps, to share instrumentation. She would also like to cite the piece in a grant proposal she has in progress.

Questions

  1. How should Beth proceed?
  2. What are the editors obligations to the author and the reviewer?
  3. What are the rights of the author?
