Our peer-review process


Potential reviewers receive an email where they can accept or decline an invitation to review. Reviewers provide their comments via our online peer-review system, Editorial Manager. We ask that reviewers remain objective and constructive when providing their review and ensure they are aware that the peer-review process is blind and that their names will not be available online alongside the published paper.   

Their review, comments and recommendation are sent to the Associate Editor, and through to the Deputy Editor-in-chief for comment. The final decision rests with the Editor-in-chief.

The author will receive the comments and decision along with instructions via our online system, Editorial Manager.
