Double Blind Peer Review

Journal of Ideas in Health adoptes a double-blind peer review policy, in which both the authors and the reviewers are anonymous. Authors must be sure that their identity is not included in the main text of manuscript.

Peer review is an important evaluation process, designed to maintain the quality of high scientific work. The aim of this process is to give constructive feedback to authors, so that their work becomes one of the highest possible academic standards. Peer reviews also help editors decide on the suitability of the paper for publication in the journal.

Conflicts of Interest

In case of any conflict of interest that may prejudice the report, reviewers can either contact the editor office directly or reject the review invitation. Conflicts of interest arise when professional judgment is affected by other interest, for example, a financial relationship, an intellectual belief, a personal relationship or a competition. To maintain high credibility standards, we ask reviewers to be aware of potential conflicts of interest and inform us about it.

Confidentiality

The reviewers should not share the content of the manuscript (including the summary or abstract) with another person. Double blind peer review is a confidential process where both the author and the reviewer must be careful to keep the content confidential. Auditors should inform the Editorial Office if they prefer a student or colleague to write the review on their behalf.

Timely Reviews

Usually Journal ask reviewers to submit their reports in a timely manner, to provide a high quality publishing service that benefits the scientific community, otherwise reviewers have to contact the editorial office if they need to extend the deadline for their review.
