Policies About Review of Manuscripts

LiveCoMS review

Review is to evaluate the quality, relevance, and merit of submitted papers. Comments should be as complete and detailed as possible and contain clear opinions about strengths, weaknesses, relevance, and importance to the field. Comments should be specific and constructive and suggestions should be intended to enhance the manuscript.

Specific details on what reviewers look for are set out in the sections of the authors guide for each manuscript type.

Conflicts of interest

A reviewer may not have conflict of interest with an author of paper they are reviewing. A definition of conflict of interest is laid out in section III of the LiveCoMS bylaws.
