Reviewer’s Comments to Authors

This research on effect of stress outcomes on job performance of women doctors made an attempt to analyse the stress factors and its outcome results on the job performance of women doctors. Both primary and secondary sources of data collections were used. Primary data were collected for the study from 231 women doctors working at various government hospitals and private hospitals in Coimbatore through a structured questionnaire.

Major Comments

  1. The major findings of the study can be given. So that the readers of the paper can get clear idea about the entire analysis part of the study where there was lots of analysis report given in the study.
  2. There is no information on period of study and area of the study. There is particular mentioning of demographic detail of the study like company name, zone name or district of the study area. The author should focus on the above mentioned parts which are mainly needed for a research study.
  3. There was no mention of the limitations of the study, one of which is the apparently high dropout rate. Also, mention how your results compare to (reference given to author) another study which was published very recently.

Minor Comments
