Blind peer review process

  1. Monitoring and ensuring the fairness
  2. Timeliness
  3. Attention to detail
  4. consideration of the manuscript for publication.

Blind peer review by external referees who have the necessary subject expertise is the most common method to ensure manuscript quality for publication. Sometimes manuscripts are rejected without external peer review, to make use of their resources, some of the reasons include, that the manuscript does not fit into the scope of the journal, does not meet the quality requirements of the journal and lacks novelty and originality in terms of the submitted information.

Referees are normally selected either by the editor or by associate editor and in some cases the members of the editorial board to whom the task has been delegated.

Blind peer review process: Blind peer review is usually a very gifted scientific process, it needs a lot of time from scientists and global researches for whom time is a very precious commodity. Hence a backup must be ready with the editor in case one of the reviewers might opt to stay away from the peer review process.
