BenchCouncil: International Open Benchmark Council

 

Submission

Peer Review

The articles in this journal are peer-reviewed according to the BenchCouncil Journals review rules. Before sending the paper to a specific Associate Editor (AE) for further handling, the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) team, consisting of one EIC, one or two associate EICs, and one assistant EIC, will guarantee each paper reaches the minimum publication standards. The one member of the EIC team without conflict of interest (COI) is responsible for checking COIs, while the other EIC and AE, who do not know the authors' identities, make a final decision. Each published article is reviewed by a minimum of three independent reviewers using a double-blind peer-review process. The identities of the reviewers are not known to the authors. Still, the reviewers also do not know the identities of the authors. Articles are screened for plagiarism before acceptance. For each paper, the EIC team makes a final decision within three months.
