Peer Review Policy

All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff. To save time for authors and peer-reviewers, those original contributions judged to be of insufficient interest for our readership are rejected promptly and returned to the authors without further evaluation. If a submission is thought to be of potential interest by both the Editor in Chief and an Associate Editor, the submission is assigned to peer-reviewers. Care is taken to avoid conflicts of interest. The identities of the authors are disclosed to the peer reviewers; the peer-reviewers are offered anonymity to encourage candid assessment of the submission. Reviewers are asked to evaluate the submission with respect to the novelty, to generalizability, and to the likelihood that publication will change thinking or practice. Reviewers recommend acceptance, revision, or outright rejection. The Associate Editor synthesizes the reviews and recommendations for the Editor-in-Chief, who has the final authority and responsibility for determining whether a submission is ultimately published. 


Invited commentaries, letters to the editor, obituaries and similar content are reviewed by the editorial leadership and generally not evaluated by peer–reviewers.
