JNRD is committed to peer-review integrity and upholding the highest standards of review based on a single blind review process, where the author does not know who the reviewers are. The peer review process is applied to all submissions.
All contributions will be initially assessed by the Editors in Chief regarding its suitability for the journal. Appropriate manuscripts will be sent to a JNRD Co-Editor who is responsible for the review process and looks for at least one independent expert reviewer. At least two persons need to review the manuscript; either two external reviewers or one external reviewer and the co-editor her-/himself. Once the review process is concluded, Co Editor and Editor in Chief will jointly take the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles.
