  The Review process

  Review process

All papers are subject to single blind peer review. Papers are accepted or rejected for publication and published solely on the basis of merit. For manuscripts that go for review, the Editorial Office will communicate the outcome to the authors within three months of receipt. If there are any delays, the authors will be informed. Revised manuscripts should be submitted within three months and will be subject to further evaluation by reviewers as well as the Editor.

Conservation and Society carries out a pre-review to assess a manuscript's suitability for the journal. The Editor carries out an initial evaluation of each manuscript and may consult an Associate Editor during the pre-review process. Potential manuscripts are then sent to an Associate Editor (or Subject Editor) who will identify reviewers and oversee the review process for that manuscript. Associate Editors as well as reviewers are provided with manuscript-rating sheets. The Associate Editor then communicates the reviewer’s comments as well as his own comments and recommendations for the manuscript. Reviewers are given the choice to remain anonymous.

Authors are free to mention potential reviewers and also name individuals to whom their manuscripts should not be sent (please provide reason), but the Editor’s decision will be final in this regard. Authors may also suggest a supervising editor for their manuscript from the members of the Editorial Board.
