Peer Review

All submissions to the JSSD are preliminarily checked by the editor for suitability for adherence to the journal’s stylistic requirements. Those that are found to be generally suitable are assigned to section editors for screening, after which those that are deemed acceptable are subjected to double blind peer review (by at least 2 reviewers). As in any other editorial peer review system, authors of manuscripts needing revision are provided with feedback and their corrections are examined by the editor/reviewers, depending on whether the corrections are minor or major.
