I disagree. As one who is writing a dissertation, it is my experience
that editorial reviews are perfectly ethical, whether or not the
professor urges it. Of course, editorial reviews are just that --
editorial. They do not contribute meaningfully to content, except for
reducing reader confusion, and they certainly do not advance a science,
which is the purpose of a dissertation.
