All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff. Only papers that seem most likely to meet our editorial criteria are sent to reviewers, typically 2 reviewers. We have a peer-review assessment form which includes the journal's criteria. This form must to be completed by the peer-reviewers. Each criteria have a maximum of points. Reading the manuscript the peer-reviewers must aim the next criteria:
a) Originality of investigation - 20 points b) Scientific freshness - 15 points c) Application in the current clinical practice - 15 points d) Quality of the study's design - 10 points e) Quality of results' display - 10 points f) Clarity and depth of discussion - 10 points g) Clarity of conclusions - 10 points h) Accuracy and topicality of the citations/reference list - 5 points i) Quality of writing and editing the manuscript, generally - 5 points
Based on the considerations from the Peer Review Assessment Form, the manuscripts will receive a score of a maximum of 100 points. A score of ?50 leads to rejection, and a score higher than 70 leads to the publishing of the paper. A score between 50-70 points usually implies that there is a need for minor modifications. Also, the peer-reviewers are welcomed to make some observations and suggest modifications. The Editorial Board tries to evaluate the strength of the arguments raised by each reviewer and by the authors. We may return to reviewers for further advice, particularly in cases where they disagree with each other, or where the authors believe they have been misunderstood on points of fact. However, editors will not send a resubmitted paper back to the reviewers if it seems that the authors have not made the serious attempt to respond and address the criticisms.
