Peer Review Process

The Journal of Health Design uses "double blind" peer review, which means the identity of the authors and the reviewers are not disclosed throughout the peer review process.

To ensure anonymity during peer review, please do not include any personal identifying information in your manuscript. For example, do not name the site of your study (e.g., hospital name, clinic name, town where study took place). The reviewers comments will be relayed to authors asap. We require authors to address every comment even if it is to say why you might disagree with a suggestion. Once a revised version of the paper is uploaded we will seek further comments from the reviewers and a senior editor before a final decision is made. Following publication it will not be possible to make changes to the paper. If a retraction is required the authors must submit a reason for the retraction which will be published by the journal.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
