Peer review in the academic setting is a conversation about the text between the writer and the reviewer; it is an evaluation of the text by people of similar level of experience; it is also an exercise in speaking to others about their work and an opportunity for the writer to see how the writing may be received by the audience. Therefore, any peer review creates its own rhetorical situation, with the interaction between the writer/rhetor, audience/peer reviewer, and the text/subject.
