To offer feedback on sections of the white paper report.
In a professional workplace context, your feedback does NOT include line by line grammar and editing changes that is the responsibility of the writer. Offering feedback for the global or high level content is more beneficial in the workplace.
The white paper report has potentially different audiences, and the peer reviewer can help you refocus your report as needed.
A manager does not have the time to read a complete report, and may only read certain sections. On the other hand, a budget analyst or an operations supervisor may read other sections that are important for their needs.
This peer review will offer constructive feedback for your peers. In many professional contexts, you do not write alone you work on project teams, in professional office units, or collaborate with other divisions. Your constructive feedback benefits you and everyone else.
