The peer-review process

“Manuscript would need to be revised to comply with the requirements of our journal”.
Letter from an editor

A manuscript submitted to a peer-reviewed journal will be sent to a number of referees chosen by the journal editors. The referees will together with the editors screen the manuscript and ask questions such as:

  • Does the study have an original scholarly or scientific message ?
  • Do the message, content and topic fit the scope of the journal?
  • Does the work make a useful and exciting contribution to the research field?
  • Is the work focused and presented in a logical manner,  so that the reader will understand the authors’ conclusions?
  • Is the language clear?
  • Does the manuscript follow the journal’s instructions to authors?

“Unsuitable for our readership”.

Letter from an editor

The outcome of the peer-review may be:

  • Acceptance of the manuscript without revisions
  • Acceptance with minor or major revisions
  • Rejection of the manuscript

The referees will often provide new views on the work, with suggestions for further improvement of the manuscript. Use these comments to improve the manuscript for any re-submission. If  your manuscript  is rejected, be even more  stringent in choosing another journal to submit to,  since it is unnecessary work to choose a journal which require a total change in structure and layout. Once your manuscript has been accepted for publication, you will receive a manuscript proof that you have to read carefully, to check that there are no printing or layout errors.
