This is a good adaptable set up for a peer review. It covers all the necessary steps for handling a argumentative paper peer review. Though one particular way I've always found peer review to be helpful was when the other person always took notes as they are looking over the paper. Comments on things they liked as well as things that were perhaps a bit weaker can help in the refining process.

Rather than waiting til the entire document is read, I feel it is difficult to gather all thoughts on the paper at that one point and instead this should be something that takes place throughout the whole review.
