Saudi Journal of Emergency Medicine

Peer Review Policy

The journal follows the publisher's Editorial Policies available here. A summary is provided below:

Articles submitted for possible publication are subjected to peer-review. We follow a double-blind and peer review process but after publication, the reviewers (referees) names maybe disclosed. Articles are first reviewed by editors. The editor may reject it out of hand either because it is not within the aims and scope of that journal or because it is manifestly of a low quality so that it cannot be considered at all. Articles that are found suitable for review are then sent to a minimum of two experts in the respective field. Referees (the peer reviewers) of a paper are unknown to each other. Referees are asked to classify the paper as publishable immediately, publishable with amendments and improvements or not publishable. Referees’ evaluations usually include an explicit recommendation of what to do with the manuscript. Referees’ comments are then seen by the editor and forwarded to the author for further action.
