Double-Blind Peer Review

Journal of Ideas in Health adopts 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 the manuscript.

Prior to the review process, all our valued reviewers are encouraged to make look at the “Publication Ethics & Publication Malpractice Statement” for reviewers (PDF) and to follow the instruction listed in the Review Guidelines (PDF).

The double-blind review process begins when the author submits the manuscript to the journal. The relevant editor will assess the submitted manuscript. At this point, the decision would be either to reject the manuscript or to send to reviewers. At least two independent expert reviewers will be assigned to assess the scientific quality of the manuscript. Depending on the reviewer's comments, the editorial's decision would be either to reject the manuscript or to send back to the author for revision. Manuscripts that responded to the reviewer's comments and fulfilled the journal style will be passed to copyediting and publication process. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final.
