Posted by Mr. Mark J Carver on 21 Nov 2016 05:06:09 AM GMT Reviewed by Interested Peers

  • What are the main claims of the paper and how important are they?

    The main point of this paper is to offer a breif review of pharmacokinetics of alcohol and the factors that affect it. This is an important topic for medical and pharmaceutical professionals to understand as alcohol could have significant drug interactions or physiological effects. 

  • Are these claims novel? If not, please specify papers that weaken the claims to the originality of this one.

    This paper is a review of prior literature so no new novel claims were presented.

  • Are the claims properly placed in the context of the previous literature?

    The conlusions and ideas presented in this paper are in agreement with the referenced research and information. 

  • Do the results support the claims? If not, what other evidence is required?


  • If a protocol is provided, for example for a randomized controlled trial, are there any important deviations from it? If so, have the authors explained adequately why the deviations occurred?


  • Is the methodology valid? Does the paper offer enough details of its methodology that its experiments or its analyses could be reproduced?


  • Would any other experiments or additional information improve the paper? How much better would the paper be if this extra work was done, and how difficult would such work be to do, or to provide?

    This paper could have benifited from an inclusion of any current research being conducted relevant to the topic. This would give the readers an understanding of the current status of the topic.

  • Is this paper outstanding in its discipline? (For example, would you like to see this work presented in a seminar at your hospital or university? Do you feel these results need to be incorporated in your next general lecture on the subject?) If yes, what makes it outstanding? If not, why not?

    No. This paper contains no new novel research.

  • Other Comments:

    As a review, this paper was well put together and informative on the topic of alchol pharmacokinetics.
