Peer Review Process
JPO uses a double-blinded peer review process. Manuscripts are screened for appropriate scope and content quality, then the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) invites 2 or 3 experts on the topic to serve as peer reviewers. Statisticians are invited to evaluate manuscripts when necessary. Blinded reviewer comments are sent to the authors with the EIC’s decision to accept, revise, or reject the manuscripts. Accepted articles are published digitally as Online First prior to being published with an issue.
