Manuscripts submitted to Veterinary Evidence undergo a double-blind peer-review process (neither the author nor the reviewers know each other’s identities) and are sent to a minimum of two reviewers.
The Associate Editor and Editorial Office ensure that the peer-review process is fair, unbiased, and timely. Reviewers are invited to review only if they have suitable expertise in the relevant field.
Authors can provide names, affiliations and contact details of potential reviewers. Suggested reviewers will be used at the Associate Editor’s discretion, and if their contact details can be verified from an independent source.
All disclosures of potential conflicts of interest made by reviewers are reviewed by the Associate Editor in order to determine whether there is any potential for bias.
