Peer-reviewing is essential to ensure the quality of scientific publications. The submitted research articles are reviewed by at least two independent reviewers, experts in the field. The final decision is taken by the handling editor, who normally bases the decision on the reviewers’ recommendation. In case of doubts or contradicting reviews, the editor may request an additional review or overrun one of the reviewers recommendations.
The authorship is not hidden for the reviewers during the review process.
To acknowledge the efforts being made, TSR journal makes public the names of both the editor and the reviewers of the accepted papers.
If a paper is published against a recommendation of the reviewer, his/her name is not disclosed. Neither are revealed the names of the reviewers of the papers that have been rejected.
