Peer Review Process

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. The traditional single and double-blind peer review processes are effective, however, there are limitations and we believe there are benefits to an Open Peer Review process as well, the details of which are described below:

Open Peer Process for Scholarly Books:

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.  Our books are focused on three disciplines: 1. Medicine and Health 2. Science and Technology and 3. Social Sciences. The works that are included in this open peer trial have already been accepted and contracted for publication.  If you are interested in participating as a reviewer, please contact Stella Rosa at nova.main@novapublishers.com. To avoid any delays in publication, we are providing reviewers with one month to evaluate and provide their feedback on the selected book proposals and chapters to help authors to develop their books. Thank you.
