Peer Review Process

The preliminary evaluation of manuscripts as to their fitting the scope of the journal and compliance with the Instructions to Authors is carried out by the Section Editor. All manuscripts compliant with the journal's requirements will be reviewed by two or more referees. Authors can suggest two referees. Referees evaluate manuscripts on their significance, scientific rigor, originality, degree of interest to the heterocyclic chemistry community, thoroughness of compound characteri­zation, appropriateness of the cited literature, and quality of writing.

The evaluation process is confidential, except in the case where a referee alleges an intentional presentation of falsified data in the manuscript. The authors are given the chance to see the reviews of their manuscript.

The Editors have the final decision on acceptance of the manuscript for publication.
