SALT JSRH is committed to publishing high-quality, impactful research that advances the field of healthcare. To achieve this, we employ a rigorous and transparent double-blind peer review process.
This means that:
1. Submission and initial screening: Manuscripts undergo an initial editorial assessment for adherence to our submission guidelines and scope.
2. Expert reviewers selection: Two or more reviewers with relevant expertise in the research area are carefully selected.
3. Double-blinded review: Reviewers receive anonymized manuscripts and provide detailed feedback on the research's originality, significance, methodology, results, discussion, and conclusions.
4. Editorial decision: The Editor-in-Chief, based on reviewer recommendations and considering the overall merit of the work, makes a decision on acceptance, revision, or rejection.
5. Author communication: Authors receive anonymized reviewer feedback and the editorial decision. They have the opportunity to address reviewer concerns and revise their manuscript if necessary.
6. Final decision and publication: After a possible revision and further review, the Editor-in-Chief makes the final decision. Accepted articles undergo copyediting and formatting before publication.
SALT JSRH continuously evaluates and refines its peer review process to ensure its effectiveness and adherence to ethical guidelines. We believe that a robust and transparent peer review system is essential for publishing impactful research that benefits patients, healthcare professionals, and researchers worldwide.
