Abstract When you ask for telescope time or research funding, you expect your proposal to be assessed fairly by impartial and knowledgeable reviewers. Ethical practices for peer review are aimed at making sure this happens. I will discuss confidentiality to protect both proposers and reviewers; conflicts of interest that might prevent a reviewer from being impartial; and how to give each proposal fair consideration. And for good peer review, we must all take our turns as a reviewer!
