Procedures for external peer review

Unless commissioned, papers submitted to ORGANON and recognized by the Editor as relevant to the journal’s scope are sent to at least two referees for double-blind peer review.

The referees are asked to:
- prepare the evaluation in written;
- evaluate the paper with respect to its general interest to the readership, contribution to knowledge, clarity of presentation and overall quality;
- explicitly recommend acceptance, conditioned acceptance (major or minor revisions) or rejection of the paper and suggest prospective changes.

ORGANON aims to give authors notification of acceptance, conditioned acceptance or rejection within 3 months. Accepted papers are expected to be published within 12 months.

Names of contributing referees are published at the ORGANON website annually, by the end of the year.
