Within European Publishing journals, the Editors-in-Chief have full authority over the entire editorial content of their journal and the timing of publication of that content. The Editors-in-Chief are supported by expert international editorial boards comprised of individuals with relevant research, academic and or policy expertise. Together they make decisions on the validity and integrity of the submitted manuscripts in light of the journal's aim and scope.
The Editors-in-Chief and Editorial boards of journals published by European Publishing are supported by trained editorial assistants. Upon recruitment to their position editors are provided with documentation to support their activities including on their code of conduct, on how to perform peer review, the confidentiality of information they may view, and how to handle suspected author misconduct.
Provenance and peer review
All articles submitted to journals published by European Publishing undergo double blind peer review. In all cases the manuscript is also reviewed by at least one member of the editorial board and the Editor-in-Chief. Letters to the Editor and Editorials are peer reviewed internally.
Authors may suggest reviewers that are qualified to peer review the manuscript, provided that they have not collaborated closely in the near past and that they are not from the same institution. Authors may also note peer reviewers who they would not prefer to review this paper. While the authors suggestions are taken into account, the Editorial Office reserves the right to handle peer review at its discretion. All articles have a specific provenance and peer review tab (commissioned vs. non commissioned; internally vs. externally peer reviewed)
