Double-Blind Peer Review Process
CDJ uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. Within this aim, the authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. Editors will email selected Reviewers the title and abstract of the submission, as well as an invitation to log into the journal web site to complete the review. Reviewers enter the journal web site to agree to do the review, to download submissions, submit their comments, and select a recommendation.
The typical period of time allowed for reviews: 6 weeks which can be modified during the editorial process.
Reviewers will have access to the submission file only after agreeing to review it.
