|Peer review policy||All submissions to journals published by Zabol University of Medical Sciences are assessed by an editor, who will decide whether they are suitable for peer review. Where an editor is on the author list or has any other competing interest regarding a specific submission, another member of the editorial board will be assigned to assume responsibility for overseeing peer review. Submissions felt to be suitable for consideration will be sent for peer review by appropriate independent experts. Editors will make a decision based on the reviewers’ reports and authors are sent these reports along with the editorial decision on their manuscript. Authors should note that even in light of one positive report, concerns raised by another reviewer may fundamentally undermine the study and result in the manuscript being rejected.
All journals published by Zabol University of Medical Sciences operate a closed double-blind peer review process. The authors and the reviewers will be treated anonymously.
