European Journal of Hybrid Imaging operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous. Publication of research articles by European Journal of Hybrid Imaging is dependent primarily on their scientific validity and coherence as judged by our external expert editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field.
Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates already published work, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. Reviewers will also be asked to indicate how interesting and significant the research is. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board.
Peer review is conducted using Editorial Manager®, supported by a database of international experts. This database is shared with the journals European Journal of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging, EJNMMI Research, EJNMMI Physics, and EJNMMI Radiopharmacy and Chemistry.
