Pen Academic gives utmost importance to the peer-review process. All submissions will be reviewed initially by the editors for appropriateness to journals. If the editor considers the manuscript to be appropriate, it will then double-blind peer-reviewed by independent, anonymous expert referees. The reviewers do not know each other or the authors of the manuscript thanks to the blind peer review, and authors do not know anything about the identity of the reviewers. After the peer review process, the editor decides on the acceptance or rejection of the manuscript in light of the reviewer reports. If the manuscript requires major or minor revision, the peer-review process is re-operated.
