Peer-review system of the editorial department of the Reservoir Evaluation and Development
Peer-review is an important part of publishing manuscripts in academic journals. The editorial department can ensure the quality of the journal by judging whether to accept the manuscripts according to the opinions from experts in the same field. The editorial department of the Reservoir Evaluation and Development carries out the three-trial system, including the review of executive editor, experts and chief editor (editorial board). The author's name, unit, financial support and other relevant information will be deleted before submitted for review, so all review links belong to the double-blind system. The details are as follows:
1. Preliminary review by executive editors
The review is focused on the overall situation of the manuscript such as topic and academic level. A manuscript that meets the requirements of this journal can entered into the peer-review, otherwise, it will be rejected.
2. Peer-review by experts
The manuscript will be evaluated from its creativity, academic level, and rigor. Manuscripts will be reviewed by 1 or 2 experts, and opinions will be provided for the author's reference.
3. Final review by chief editors (editorial board)
The chief editors decide whether to accept the manuscript or for revision according to the opinions of peer reviewers. Manuscripts with dispute will be submitted to the editorial board for discussion, and the final decision will be made according to specific opinions.
