What is peer review?
Peer review is the foundation of scientific publishing. When you are asked to review a manuscript that has been submitted for publication, your expertise is being acknowledged and your opinion is being valued. As a service to our authors, we try to provide prompt, constructive feedback to help them improve their manuscript before publication, or we may find that their manuscript would be more suitable for another journal. We rely on our reviewers to share their experience and expertise so we can publish only the highest quality research and reviews.

The peer review process
All submissions to the journal are initially reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief and an Associate Editor. At this stage, manuscripts may be rejected without peer review if it is felt that they are not of high enough priority or relevance to the journal’s readers or are not within scope of the journal. This process means that authors are given a quick decision and do not need to wait for the review process.
Manuscripts that are not instantly rejected are sent for single-anonymized peer review, usually to two independent reviewers. Based on the feedback from these reviewers and the editors' judgment, a decision is given on the manuscript.
