Peer Review Process

The Steno promotes evaluation of all the original papers by two or three independent reviewers. The peer-review process is essential for ensuring the quality of the scientific information disseminated. The reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript by applying the same standards as for the international journals. The reviewers send their comments to the Editor. The Editor will inform the authors about the suggestions made by the referee and ask them to answer the questions and make the required corrections. The revised manuscript should be sent in no more than two months to the Editor. Revised manuscripts sent later will not be considered.
When the Editor receives the corrected version with all changes marked, accompanied by a letter with a point-by-point reply to the reviewers’ comments, he sends those back to the same reviewer, who makes the final recommendation for acceptance or rejection of the manuscript.
