HPU Peer Review Policy

Manuscripts that pass an internal desk review (for suitability) are sent to at least two external reviewers who are experts in the topic area addressed by the paper. Reviewers provide comments to the editor, who relays them to the primary author.  Reviews are double-blind (i.e., neither authors nor reviewers know each other’s identity or institutional affiliation), and we ask all reviewers to evaluate the manuscript bearing in mind the following considerations: mportance of subject to the welfare of poor and underserved communities, appropriateness of study design (for research papers), strength of evidence supporting conclusions, and clarity.
