Anonymous peer review process: read if you are editing for us

Above is the link that is mandatory for all new editors and special issue or themed sections editors to read.

In the past it has occurred that special issue editors do not understand the importance of anonymous peer review, or the importance of removing themselves from the review procss if there is a conflct of interest in expressed opinion.

Femspec prizes itself on being a peer reviewed journal as this helps with legitimacy for those in academe getting tenured.

Even if you are a specialist in the field editing a special issue for us or with us you must peer review, rather than review yourself knowing the names of the submitters, in order toprotect the standards of the journal.

Thnk you very much.
