Peer Review Process

General requirements

All articles must meet the highest scientific quality standards, both in terms of originality and significance, and the research results should make substantial advances within a particular subfield of education. AnDidBio publishes only original research.

Copyright

Submission of a manuscript implies; that the work described has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, or thesis) that it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Copyright for articles published in this journal is retained by the authors, with first publication rights granted to the journal. By virtue of their appearance in this open access journal, articles are free to use, with proper attribution, in educational and other non-commercial settings.

Peer Review Process

Each paper is reviewed by the Editor in Chief and, if it is judged suitable for publication, it is then sent to at least two referees for blind review. Neither the Editor nor the reviewer will impose his or her personal biases on authors. Every effort is made to ensure that all manuscripts receive constructive, objective and speedy appraisals. A special review form is prepared for the reviewer. Based on the recommendations, the Editor in Chief decides whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised (improved) or rejected. The process described above is a general one. This process may vary depending on certain circumstances. The review process usually takes around 4-6 weeks. Full document is available here.
