    EDITOR, - In asking for the comments of previous peer reviewers when papers are submitted to the BMJ the journal does many conscientious authors a disservice.1 Authors often either alter or completely rewrite their paper, taking into account criticisms that have been raised. Any further submission should be judged only on its own merits.
