Reviewing Process though the ReviewSlot
Trivent Publishing peer reviews the material it receives. Prior to publication, our manuscripts go through a rigorous double blind peer review process through our own reviewing system: the ReviewSlot™.
The ReviewSlot is an easy to use review system. Its purpose is to offer its users a clear and fast paper management process, while solely using double blind peer review in order to support academic impartiality.
The ReviewSlot helps editors, authors, and reviewers to manage their publications. The following features are supported by ReviewSlot:
- Paper submission
- Editor, author, and reviewer registration
- Review committee management
- Easy access to submitted papers for editors
- Double blind peer review
- Submission of reviews
- Detailed review process
- Monitoring the review process
- Email management for authors, reviewers, and editors
- Submission of final papers
In order to assure the correctness of the reviewing process, we ask our reviewers to agree to the COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers. If you wish to become one of our peer reviewers please fill in the New Reviewer Form and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Standards and Ethics
In order to assure high-standard publications, publishing revenue has no influence on editorial decisions. The selection process is based on scientific value which is why the peer review process stands at the core of our publishing process.
The duties of the reviewers include the contribution to the editorial decision, objectivity, confidentiality, promptness, attention to and checking for plagiarism, disclosure and attention to conflicts of interest.
The duties of the editors include the final decision on publication, fair play, confidentiality, involvement and cooperation in investigations, disclosure, and attention to conflicts of interest.
Author duties include meeting academic standards, seeking originality, acknowledgement of sources, avoidance of plagiarism, multiple or redundant publication, attention to errors in published works.
