Peer Review Process

The purpose of peer review is to improve the quality of the manuscript under review, and of the material that is eventually published. Conscientious peer review is a time-consuming task but is essential to assure the quality of scientific journals. The Journal of Menopuase Society of Sri Lanka is very grateful for the time and effort you invest in the review process.

The Journal of Menopause Society of Sri Lanka adheres to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) Code of Conduct and Best Practice Guidelines (https://publicationethics.org/).

We strive to ensure that peer review is fair, unbiased and timely. Decisions to accept or reject a manuscript for publication are based on the manuscript’s importance, originality and clarity, and the study’s validity and its relevance to the remit of the journal.

We use a wide range of sources to identify potential reviewers, including the editorial board, personal knowledge, author suggestions, and bibliographic databases. Reviewers’ evaluations play a major role in our decision as to whether to accept a manuscript for publication.

The Journal of Menopause Society of Sri Lanka operates a double-blind review process in which the identities of the authors are hidden from the reviewers, and identities of the reviewers are hidden from the authors. Reviewers can choose to sign their reviews if they wish.
