Review Process

After a manuscript is submitted to Dhaka Shishu (Children) Hospital Journal, it is assessed by the editorial team to see if it meets the criteria for submission. If it does, the editorial team will select potential peer reviewers within the field of research to peer-review the manuscript. The review is double blind that is the reviewers do not know the names of the authors, and the authors do not know who reviewed their manuscript. The reviewer then reviews the paper and if major problems are found at this stage, they may feel comfortable rejecting the paper without further work. Otherwise they will build a detailed point-by-point review. The review is then submitted to the journal, with a recommendation to accept or accept with modification or to reject it. The whole process may need 1 month.
