The Paper Review Process in Nova Biotechnologica et Chimica

All articles are peer-reviewed by at least two qualified, independed experts in the field, and by the Editorial Board members. Reviewers are aware of the identity of the authors, but authors are unaware of the identity of reviewers. The review process takes up to 4-6 weeks, and ends up with a review report and decision (acceptance, required revision or rejection) that will be delivered to corresponding author. Editors latter communicate with authors, as required, and indicate the necessary amendments to improve the quality of the paper. Editors believe that authors will find the reviewers‘ comments constructive, helpful and will consider using them to revise their work. The revised papers are sent to the reviewers for evaluation again.

The manuscripts are accepted for publication by the Editor in Chief.

Papers considered by the Editor in Chief as clearly below the standards of the journal, out of the journal´s scope or not in the required NBC form, are rejected without review. Authors who receive rejection letters should be aware that editorial boards are highly selective in their decision process to maintain the high editorial quality and citation rate.
