We now accept direct feedback on manuscripts via Hypothes.is. Before commenting you will need to set up your Hypothes.is account. We kindly request that individuals use their real name, link to their institution and ORCID account.


We do not moderate comments at present, but have the option to do so should it be necessary. We hope that this will not be the case and the commentors follow the following basic rules.

  1. Treat the manuscript authors with respect.
  2. Criticisms should be levied in a polite manner.
  3. The reviewer should avoid statements that are demeaning or insulting and should avoid sarcasm.
  4. Refer to the manuscript rather than the author[s] (e.g., “This manuscript suffers from alack of attention to detail”).

If you have any comments, questions or concerns, please email aaron “at” sportrxiv.org.
