Review Process

Review Process: All submitted papers will be processed in double blind review

  • Double blind peer review guidelines when preparing a manuscript for double-blind peer review, check these common places where manuscripts and submission files may reveal an author’s identity.
  • Do not include names or affiliations anywhere in the manuscript or Supplementary Information
  • When referring to your own work in the manuscript, use neutral terminology. Replace phrases like “as we have shown before” with “as has been shown before” or similar.
  • Remove any author names from the figures.
  • Include acknowledgements, author information/contributions, and author name order in the cover letter, not in the manuscript. This information can be transferred after the completion of the peer review process.
  • Do not add names to any document included with your submission.
