5. What is the peer-review policy for SpringerOpen journals?
Articles submitted in a SpringerOpen journal are usually sent out to peer reviewers, although submissions that are out of scope for the journal or are of an unacceptably low standard may be rejected without review. Potentially suitable manuscripts will generally be reviewed by at least two experts in the field with the aim of reaching a first decision as soon as possible. Specialist statistical advisers are used when necessary to ensure that the statistical reasoning in manuscripts is sound; they can be found via the journal's homepage. Reviewers are asked to declare their competing interests, if any.
