Peer Review Process

A critical objective of LiBRI's mission statement is to provide highly relevant information. LiBRI have implemented a rigorous peer review process to ensure the high quality of its material.

With regards to the policies and procedures, all scientific papers and communications published in LiBRI shall be reviewed by at least two referees who are competent and have experience in the area of the subject matter of the paper. Referees are formal reviewers whose comments and opinions will form the basis upon which the Editor-in-Chief will decide whether or not to publish the paper, and with what changes. LiBRI requires that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information, not to be disclosed to others before publication. The referees are protected from personal interactions with the author by withholding their names. The Editors' decision is always based on all the reviews received, but mixed reviews present the need for the exercise of editorial judgment. Thus, the final decision for acceptance or rejection lies with the Editor-in-Chief at the advice of the Editorial Board. The review process shall ensure that all authors have equal opportunity for publication of their papers.
