The Romanian Journal of Child and Adolescent Neurology and Psychiatry operates a peer-review system. Manuscripts that are deemed suitable for peer-review will be assigned to three expert reviewers. Reviewers may be members of the Editorial Board and external experts in the field.
All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff and peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers, experts with reputation in the field of the article.
The editors then make a decision based on the reviewers’ advice.
The Romanian Journal of Child and Adolescent Neurology and Psychiatry is committed to rapid editorial decisions and publication, this I why we ask for an efficient editorial process, respecting the timing of the review.
We comply with the anonymity rules of the peer review process and with the blind review, so that we don’t release the reviewers’ identities to the authors. The advantage of this blind review process is the fact that it allows for impartial decisions free from influence by the author.
