Double blind peer review
VJE adopts double blind review, which means that the reviewers and authors cannot identify each others’ information.
How to become a reviewer
Reviewers are usually invited by the editorial office or recommended by authors. Scientists can register to become VJE reviewers by registering in the VJE system.
If review comments cannot be submitted within the 14 days of the review period, please decline to review or ask for an extension of the review period.
Notice: For each review of the article, the reviewer will receive a nominal fee of 15 USD. This amount will be added and paid for the APC of articles of which the reviewer is a co-author.
