|Peer review policy||Review for Edited Volumes
All submitted manuscripts are subject to a review to ensure that they comply with the scientific and ethical requirements. Book chapter manuscripts are submitted to IntechOpen as contributions to Edited Volumes. All chapters undergo a main Editor peer-review. Academic Editors' chapters undergo external blind peer-review – the result is a fully peer-reviewed book.
Book chapters go through a two-step review process: chapter proposal review and full chapter review. The Academic Editor reviews all chapter proposals, decides which topics to focus on, suggests improvements and selects potential manuscripts with a high degree of relevance and bearing on developments within the field. Academic Editors have the overall responsibility for the content of the publication. Chapters that do not fall within the Scope and Topics of the book, are scientifically not sound, are incomplete, or of marginal interest to the field are rejected.
Once submitted, the Academic Editor(s) reviews the full chapters, too, by screening them for plagiarism, evaluating their scientific merit, and ultimately decides whether they are suitable for inclusion in the book or not.
During the review process the Academic Editor(s) suggest rounds of revision and authors work on improving their chapters. The Academic Editor(s) has/have the absolute possibility of accepting, requesting major or minor revisions, or rejecting the full chapter submissions at any point.
Review for Monographs
Each submitted manuscript undergoes a plagiarism check and enters a peer-review process afterward. Referees for monographs are external collaborators who agreed to contribute their own expertise in reviewing the submitted manuscript, independently and on a voluntary basis.
