Review Process

When action is needed, the JCSM editor will send a review invitation by email to designated reviewers. The email will contain information on the manuscript in which a review is needed, along with detailed instructions on how to commit to the review. The JCSM editorial staff promises a prompt turnaround to manuscript authors, therefore reviewers are asked to complete their review within 14 days of receipt of the review invitation. If you are not able to complete a timely review, please do not hesitate to turn down the assignment; The JCSM will offer reviewers future opportunities.

Rapid Review Help

Reviewers may visit the Rapid Review Support Section for assistance with the peer review system. Any further questions may be directed to Rosanne Money, Journal Assistant.
