Peer review policy on the Journal of Biochemical Technology

The practice of peer review is to ensure that good science is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out on all reputable scientific journals. Our reviewerstherefore play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of the Journal of Biochemical Technology and all manuscripts are peer reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

Initial manuscript evaluation

The Editor first evaluates all manuscripts. It is rare, but it is entirely feasible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Articles which are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal will be sent to author within two days further revision. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to at least 2 experts for review.

Type of peer review

This journal employs single blind review, where the reviewers remain anonymous throughout the process. Reviewers are matched to the paper according to their expertise. Our database is constantly being updated. We request suggestions for referees from the author though these recommendations may or may not be used.

Reviewers reports

Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

-Is original
-Is methodologically sound
-Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
-Has results which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
-Correctly references previous relevant work
-Reviewers are not expected to correct or copyedit manuscripts. Language correction is not part of peer review process
-Reviewer are requested to suggest suitable solutions including experimental protocols, procedures for analysis etc for the shortfalls or errors in manuscripts.

Typically reviewers are requested to review the manuscript within one to two weeks (maximum). Should the reviewers' reports contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed a further expert opinion will be sought. Revised manuscripts are usually returned to the initial reviewers within 24 hours.

Final report

A decision to accept, revise or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the reviewers, and may include verbatim comments by the reviewers. A decision of 'revise' does not necessarily mean the manuscript is to be accepted.

Editor's decision is final


Reviewers advise the editor for the final decision to accept or reject the article.

Becoming a reviewer
