Editorial & Peer Review Process
Editorial and Peer Review Processes generally follow these steps:
1. We follow and request from authors, reviewers and editors the "ICJME Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing, and Publication of Scholarly work in Medical Journals".
2. When an article is submitted to Archives of Clinical and Experimental Surgery, Editor makes the first check of submitted articles (structure, plagiarism, scientific quality).
3. Article may be rejected, sent back for structural revision, or sent to at least two reviewers for peer review.
4. After peer review process, articles may be rejected, sent back for revision requested by reviewers or accepted for publication.
5. Revised articles by authors may be accepted, resent to reviewers, resent to authors for additional corrections/revision or rejected.
6. Authors could not see reviewers’ information. Editor may make authors’ information available to reviewers or not.
7. Accepted articles are forwarded to publishing process.
8. Editor(s) may require additional materials or changes from authors during copy editing, composing, grammatical editing and/or proof reading steps.
