Peer review

Once a manuscript is submitted, the editor will evaluate it on scope, presentation, academic, and language quality grounds. Manuscripts may be sent back to the author for technical revision or declined if the work is outside the journal’s scope or does not meet the required standard. Once a manuscript has been evaluated, the editor will send it to independent referees for peer review.

The evaluation and critique from reviewers allow the editor to assess the manuscript’s suitability for publication in the journal and provides authors with feedback to improve their work. The integrity of the peer-review process is upheld through the use of one of the following:

Single-blind review: the identity of the reviewers is not disclosed to the author.

Double-blind review: the identities of the reviewers and the authors are not disclosed to each other. The author is required to remove any information that may identify him or her as the author of the paper.

Open review: papers are made available for general comment before revision and publication. The identities of the authors and reviewers are disclosed.

Post-publication open review: comments are posted by readers and reviewers after the article has been published.

Single- or double-blind peer review are the most common type of review processes used. Authors should consult the journal’s instructions for authors for details about the peer-review process used.



Authors should revise their manuscript, fully addressing all the reviewers’ comments. A letter of response should be submitted with the manuscript justifying the changes made.

Authors submitting to journals should upload the following documents: 

  • Revised manuscript, as a Word document, containing the revised text, references, tables, and figure captions. PDF manuscripts are not accepted at this stage
