Additionally each journal title describes its own policy on their individual journal site.
|Peer review policy||All UTS ePRESS publications are peer reviewed by experts and scholars in the relevant field or discipline.
UTS ePRESS publications will generally use double blind peer review (two expert reviewers are used; both the reviewer and the author are anonymous). Exceptions may be made where this is not the accepted norm within the publication’s discipline or field of research and practice. The peer review process must be objective, fair and thorough.
UTS ePRESS journals will contain a clear statement of the peer review processes on the journal’s webpage, and clearly indicate within individual issues if any section or article deviates from these stated practices.
Peer reviewers must declare any potential conflict of interest and are expected to excuse themselves where a conflict occurs. Conflicts of interest include an overlap in roles between editor, reviewer and author.
Journal Editors are expected to consider conflicts of interest when a manuscript is submitted by a member of their editorial team or editorial advisory board. In such cases a co-editor or an external trusted expert will be asked to act as editor for that article and oversee the peer review process.
