Peer Review Process

The editorial policy of the journal is based on independent, unbiased, and double-blind peer-review. All submissions uploaded to the manuscript evaluation system will be investigated in meetings by the Editorial Board for the control of their scientific contents. Individual views of board members are received and the final decision on the submission is given by the Editor in chief. Submissions with scientific contents are assigned a section editor for further processes. Section editors send a manuscript as soon as possible to 2 reviewers with a PhD degree at the least for a review request. The reviewers are asked to inform the section editors in 5 days to inform the section editors about their decisions (accept or refuse to review) on an evaluation of the manuscripts. Section editors assign new reviewers for those who refuse the review request or who do not respond in 5 days. Reviewers accepting the manuscripts for evaluation complete their review tasks in 15 days and send their review reports to section editors with which they reject the manuscript or ask for resubmission after revision. Section editors make a decision considering the reviewers’ reports and inform the author(s) about the decision.

The VetBio does not charge a submission, processing or publication fee.
