Peer Review Process

Articles are submitted from contributing editors or invited authors. All articles submitted to Pediatric Neurology Briefs are initially assessed by an Editor, who decides whether or not the article is suitable for peer review. Submissions considered suitable for peer review are assigned to one or more independent experts, who assess the article for clarity, validity, and sound methodology.

Pediatric Neurology Briefs operates a single-blind peer review process, meaning that reviewers remain anonymous for the review process. The review period is expected to take around one week. Reviewers are asked to provide formative feedback, even if an article is not deemed suitable for publication in the journal.

Based on the reviewer reports the editor will make a recommendation for rejection, minor or major revisions, or acceptance. Overall editorial responsibility rests with the journal’s Editor, who is supported by an expert Editorial Board.

Articles published prior to January 2015 re-launch of PNB were not subjected to the same peer-review process. Commentaries underwent initial extensive editorial review and revisions. Peer-review by subject experts occurred upon inclusion in the "Progress in Pediatric Pediatric Neurology" book series.
