Learn About Peer Review Types

European Publisher journals and book series follow either single or double-blind review process. Each journal and book series may differ in their peer review processes, and detailed information on peer review procedures can be found in each journal's/book series’ Code of Ethics page.

Single-blind peer review process:
 In this review type, the reviewers’ identities are concealed from the authors throughout the review process, while the authors’ identities are known to the reviewers.

Double-blind peer review process: In this review type, both the reviewers’ and authors’ identities are concealed from each other throughout the review process.


How to Prepare your Manuscript Anonymous for Reviewers?

If you will submit a manuscript to a journal that uses double-blind peer review, then you may need to check out our tips below to make your manuscript anonymous.
To avoid rejection in the initial review step and ensure an objective review process it is important to make your manuscript anonymised -by removing any details such as your and co-authors’ identification, institutiton and/or where the research was conducted- prior to submission.

To make your manuscript anonymous:

  • Do not present any grant, funding, or clinical trial details in the main text of your submission. You will be asked to provide these information separately in the title page document during submission.
  • If you need to cite your own work make sure you’ve referred to your own references in the third person, i.e. “Elliot (2022) has showed that”, instead of “In my previous research (Elliot, 2022)”.
  • Make sure that you have removed any version of the manuscript from the websites publicly accessible
  • Make sure that you have removed any personal details from Word document that may cause reviewers to identify you and your co-authors.
