Peer Review Statement

The Macedonian Veterinary Review (Mac Vet Rev) reviews all submitted manuscripts. The publication of manuscripts is subject of the referees’ approval after the peer-review process. The publishing of the accepted papers is FREE OF CHARGE.

The Mac Vet Rev uses a double-blind peer review process for evaluating papers. It is conducted through an online Manuscript Manager editorial and peer review software system for receiving and reviewing all submitted manuscripts.

Macedonian Veterinary Review recommends and accepts the COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers where all basic principles and standards are described and to which all peer reviewers should adhere during the peer-review process.

Peer Review Process

When a manuscript is submitted to Macedonian Veterinary Review, it undergoes an initial pre-screening by the Editor-in-chief and appropriate members of the Editorial Board to determine whether the paper fits the scope of the journal. If the manuscript meets the journal’s minimum standards for publication, the paper undergoes iThenticate software for the detection of plagiarism. The papers that pass the criteria of plagiarism are entering a peer-review process.

The Editor-in-chief nominates at least two peer referees upon the recommendation of the Editorial and Advisory board members. The Journal has a list of reviewers that is continually updating. The referees are carefully selected from among qualified scientists in the international scientific community.

The papers in the Mac Vet Rev are reviewed in a double-blinded manner in which the author(s), as well as their affiliations, are unknown to the reviewers, who remain also anonymous. The submitted manuscripts are sent to the referees together with the Instructions for reviewers. The referees have to fill out the online reviewer/evaluation form, incorporated into the Manuscript manager software system.

Decision: The Editor-in-chief's decision is based on the referees’ assessments and recommendations. A decision is made as "Accept", "Accept after revision" and "Reject".

If there is a marked discrepancy in the assessments and recommendations between the referees or in opinions between the author and referee(s), the Editor-in-chief may send the manuscript to another referee for additional assessment. Three repeated decisions of "Accept after revision" are regarded as "Reject".

The positively reviewed manuscript is returned to the corresponding author with comments and recommended revisions. Revisions are usually requested to take account of criticism and comments made by referees. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within four (4) weeks is regarded as a withdrawal unless prolonged upon the author’s request. The corresponding author must indicate clearly, what alterations have been made in response to the referees' comments point by point.

The peer review process may in general take eight (8) weeks from the manuscript submission to the first decision. For detailed Journal records/statistics see
