 What is peer review?

Peer review is not only the foundation, but a very strong pillar of scientific publishing. It is an honest assessment of a piece of writing by a “peer”, a person who understands and practices the same science. When you are asked to review a manuscript that has been submitted for publication, you are helping the journal to “weed out” unsuitable material, and select what should be included in a well-respected journal. Not only this, simultaneously, your expertise is being acknowledged and your opinion is being valued. Our reviewers – by accepting only high quality original papers – help us to publish only the highest quality research and reviews.

The manuscripts are checked especially for originality. We have a zero tolerance for plagiarism. Thus all manuscripts must be checked through an authentic antiplagiarism software [e.g., iThenticate].

References must always be checked, ensuring specially that they are all in uniform style [Vancouver style].

Manuscripts are always sent to two [in rare cases more also] independent reviewers. Based on the feedback from these reviewers and the editors' judgment, a decision is given on the manuscript.
