All academic editors and reviewers act completely independently from the editorial office when making their decisions or suggestions on any manuscript. The editorial office respects and relies on their expertise for maintaining our high-quality and ethical publishing practice.
We strictly follow a systematic editorial process embedding a quality control mechanism outlined by the Dail-Cyprus. Articles submitted to all Pivot journals are subject to rigorous peer review conducted by at least two reviewers from the same field as the author, and then an unbiased editorial decision by an academic editor from the journal.
Exceptions: Some articles may be exempt from regular peer review, e.g., Invited Editorials, Letters to Editor, Book Reviews, Corrections, Retractions, etc. These articles are carefully reviewed and approved for publication by the editors.
