I feel as though peer editing goes too long! It is a great experience and i have learned alot and had a lot of great advice about how to improve my paper but by the 3rd day it gets old. Everyone gets tired of peer editing and stops reading and doesnt do as good as job as they should. So I can't propose a solution but I just feel that we get lazy by the 3rd day...
