|Peer review policy||Peer Review and Reviewer Responsibilities
Manuscripts that editors forward to peer review are reviewed anonymously by at least two qualified reviewers assigned by JH&P editors. Authors are able to suggest reviewers, and may also request that JH&P excludes particular individuals or institutions. JH&P considers such requests, however the editors' decision is final. We do not release reviewer identities to authors of other reviewers except when reviewers specifically ask to be identified. Unless they feel strongly, we prefer reviewers remain anonymous.
Conflict of Interest
Reviewers must declare any potential conflict of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the research funders, and decline reviewing specific manuscripts if the potential for bias exists.
By agreeing to review the manuscript, reviewers agree to to keep submitted manuscripts and associated data confidential, and not to redistribute them without permission from JH&P.
Reviews must be objective. We ask reviewers to abstain from personally negative comments about authors or associates. Frank and honest comments about the scientific content of the manuscripts are encouraged.
