(2) Implementation and Effectiveness of Double blind Peer Review System
magazine strictly implements double blind peer review system. Each manuscript is subjected to document misconduct detection and preliminary review by the editorial department. In addition, manuscripts are reviewed by two external audit experts from the same profession and the review process for papers is double blind. If both external audit experts agree that the paper is of poor quality, publication is not recommended, and the article is rejected. If both external audit experts agree that the paper is of good quality, the article will be included in the final review. If both external audit experts agree to recommend publication after modifications, the authors will be notified of the required modifications, and the revised draft will be reviewed again before entering the final review. If one of the external audit experts believes the article to be of good quality and recommends publication while the other expert considers the paper to be of poor quality and does not recommend publication, then, a third expert will be invited to review the article, and acceptance, rejection or modification will be decided according to the third expert’s opinion. The revised manuscript will be reviewed and approved by the expert before entering the final review.
The strict implementation of double blind peer review system in the Journal of Prevention and Treatment for Stomatological Diseases has achieved good results. It has strictly controlled academic issues and avoided sentimental issues, which has ensured the quality of the papers published by the magazine.
