Peer review is the arrangement used to assess the quality of a manuscript before it is published. Independent researchers in the related research area assess submitted manuscripts for originality, validity and significance to help editors determine whether a manuscript should be published in Pharmacophore.
Pharmacophore uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are hidden, throughout the review process. The reviewers do not know the names of the authors, and the authors do not know the name of reviewer.
To facilitate this, authors need to confirm that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity.
