To ensure that MAVCOR Journal maintains the highest standards of scholarship all articles are subjected to a rigorous double blind peer review process. Review is conducted prior to publication by specialists in the appropriate field or fields.
Manuscripts are first reviewed by MAVCOR Journal’s Editor to judge their suitability for the journal. If a submission continues beyond this first stage, it then proceeds to review by members of our Editorial Board and/or subject-specialist readers. The Editor considers the reader reports and provides the author(s) with a reader response compiling the advice and recommendations of the readers. At this stage an article is either accepted without revision (which happens only rarely), accepted subject to revision, given suggestions for revision prior to resubmission, or rejected. The final decision as to whether to accept an article for publication is made by the Editor in conversation with the Editorial Board and Project Director and is communicated to the author(s) in writing.
