Peer Review Process

All articles are rigorously reviewed and the speed of publication of articles depends greatly on the authors’ readiness to respond to the reviewers’ comments.  
E&SD operates a single blind reviewing process: although the reviewers know your name, you do not know who they are. This is no less rigorous that double blind reviewing and research has shown that the outcomes of the single blind review system are no more and no less accurate than when using a double blind system.  
Reviewers are under strict instructions to keep their comments confidential and not share them with anyone except the editors dealing with your submission.  We will share the anonymised comments to the other reviewers of your work as part of the reviewer moderating process.
