Peer Review Process

Single blind review

The names of the reviewers are hidden from the author. This is the traditional method of reviewing and is the most common type by far.

  • Reviewer anonymity allows for impartial decisions – the reviewers will not be influenced by the authors.
  • Authors may be concerned that reviewers in their field could delay publication, giving the reviewers a chance to publish first.
  • Reviewers may use their anonymity as justification for being unnecessarily critical or harsh when commenting on the authors’ work.
