Reviewer Guidelines

What is Peer review?
Peer review is the process of engaging substantive experts to read and comment on new research in the fields in which they study in order to validate and certify that research. It constitutes a form of self-regulation by qualified members of a profession within the relevant field. Peer review methods are employed to maintain standards of quality, improve performance, and provide credibility.

Why Peer review?
  • The process aims to provide authors with constructive feedback from relevant experts which they can be helpful to make improvements in their work, thus ensuring it is of the highest standard possible.
  • To maintain awareness of the current research emerging within your subject area.
  • Although often anonymous, the review process can act as a conversation between author, reviewer, and editor as to how the paper can be improved to maximize its impact and further research in the field.
