Abstract: To depict an authentic instance of blind manuscript review that created questions regarding the extent to which the peer review process is ‘peerless’ (de Beaugrande 2004), in this chapter I explore referee comments as well as journal editor correspondence on a manuscript that I submitted to a leading journal in the area of applied linguistics and language education.
