Feedback 1 | Reviewer name: Ana Torrijos Mediavilla

Question 1 · TEXT

Quality of the summary:

Does the summary make the key focus, insights and/or contribution of the article clear?

What would you suggest to improve?

Answer 1

Your summary provides a good overview of the tool you will describe in the article. It is clear who you are targeting (managers and team leaders). You could also include a brief (1-2 sentences) description of the benefits this method can bring to organizations and why it is interesting for managers to implement it (and thus why it is interesting for them to read this article).

Question 2 · TEXT

Structure and logic of the article:

Is the argument clear?

Is there a logical flow to the article?

Does one part build upon the other?

Is the article consistent in its argument and free of contradictions?

What would you suggest to improve?

Answer 2

The flow of the article makes perfect sense: start off by introducing the topic and its background and then going more in depth when you explain the 4 main aspects."

"Including a discussion or conclusion would be a nice way to summarize/close up the article.

Question 3 · TEXT

Grammar and style:

Is the writing free of grammatical and spelling errors?

Is the language precise without unnecessary fill words?

What would you suggest to improve?

Answer 3

A few small grammar errors I noticed:

The very first sentence of the article, at the end it says “the well-being of the individual”. Shouldn’t it be “the well-being of the individuals”?

On the last sentence of your introduction: “and in applicable whether it is project”. Write “is” instead of “in”?

In your introduction you explain what DISC stands for: “The letters DISC stems from the words dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance.” However, later it seems like the C stands for Competence. Double check this?

In the Method of use paragraph: “person every day actions is affected”, rather “person’s every day actions are affected”.

In Behavior of low D’s: cooperative, seeks consensus

Question 4 · TEXT

Figures and tables:

Are figures and tables clear?

Do they summarize the key points of the article in a meaningful way?

What would you suggest to improve?

Answer 4

Not sure if it’s relevant but maybe include some kind of table or chart that visually shows the different characteristics of each of the 4 categories?

Question 5 · TEXT

Interest and relevance:

Is the article of high practical and / or academic relevance?

Is it made clear in the article why / how it is relevant?

What would you suggest to improve?

Answer 5

I definitely see the relevance of this topic, especially for managers and leaders (as you mentioned). Maybe you could include a section that discusses the relevance of this topic, whether it’s used often or not, etc. (or do it directly in the conclusion or discussion).

Question 6 · TEXT

Depth of treatment:

Is the article interesting for a practitioner or academic to read?

Does it make a significant contribution beyond a cursory web search?

What would you suggest to improve?

Answer 6

Yes, it explains the method very clearly. Include table/graphs if you can to make it more visual.

Question 7 · TEXT

Annotated bibliography:

Does the article properly cite and acknowledge previous work?

Does it briefly summarize the key references at the end of the article?

Is it based on empirical data instead of opinion?

What would you suggest to improve?

Answer 7

I’m not sure if it’s possible, but it would be interesting to see what the questionnaire looks like (what kind of questions, how long, what conclusions you can extract from it, etc.). Include a link to it?
