Review Process

The Journal of Lifelong DentoMedical Health employs a double-blind peer review system to ensure impartiality. Authors are instructed to omit their identities from the manuscript to maintain anonymity during the evaluation process.

 

Reviewers are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the "Publication Ethics & Publication Malpractice Statement" and Review Guidelines before conducting assessments. Upon submission, manuscripts undergo initial evaluation by an assigned editor. Non-compliant submissions are returned for revisions, while those lacking publication priority are promptly declined to expedite the process.

 

Two independent reviewers evaluate scientific quality, including originality and validity, to aid editorial decisions. Based on feedback, manuscripts are either rejected or returned for revision, considering reviewer comments and adherence to journal standards. Accepted submissions proceed to copyediting and publication, with the Editor making the final decision.

 

All communication, including editorial decisions, is conveyed via email to the corresponding author. Detailed revision instructions are provided if necessary, maintaining reviewer anonymity throughout the process.

 

Appeals and complaints

Authors are entitled to appeal rejection decisions or lodge complaints if needed. The corresponding author should utilize the journal's official email to contact the publisher, who will provide guidance on the journal's complaints procedure.
