Peer Review Process

This journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.  

To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity.  To help with this preparation please ensure the following when submitting to IJCPA: 

  • Submit the Title Page containing the Authors details and Blinded Manuscript with no author details as 2 separate files.

Please therefore ensure that the following items are present in your submission and are provided as separate files:

  1. Title Page

    The title page will remain separate from the manuscript throughout the peer review process and will not be sent to the reviewers. It should include:

    • The manuscript title
    • All authors' names and affiliations
    • A complete address for the corresponding author, including an e-mail address
    • Acknowledgements
    • Conflict of interest statement
  2. Anonymised manuscript

Please remove any identifying information, such as authors' names or affiliations, from your manuscript before submission.

As well as removing names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript, other steps need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double blind peer review.  The key points to consider are:

  • Use the third person to refer to work the authors have previously published. 
  • Make sure that figures and tables do not contain any reference to author affiliations
  • Exclude acknowledgements and any references to funding sources.  Use the title page, which is not sent to reviewers, to detail these and to declare any potential conflicts of interest to the Editor.
  • Choose file names with care, and ensure that the file’s ‘Properties’ are also anonymised.
  • Take care to ensure that you do not inadvertently upload identifying information within any of the files that will be shared with reviewers.
