Peer Review Process

What is peer review?

A peer review process is used by Publishers to assess the quality of an article, journal article, chapter or manuscript before it is published. Independent researchers in the relevant area of research are used to determine whether the manuscript(s) meet certain criteria to be published. There are two main types of peer review according to BioMed Central and used by Nova Science Publishers, Inc.:

Single-Blind Process:

The reviewers know the names of the authors, but the authors do not know who reviewed their manuscript unless the reviewer chooses to sign their review report.

Open Peer Process:

Authors know who the reviewers are, and the reviewers know who the authors are. If the manuscript is accepted, the named reviewer reports are published alongside the article or manuscript.
