Peer Review Policy
The Australasian Journal of Plastic Surgery has adopted a double-blind peer review process for original and review articles and cases. This involves an initial assessment by the relevant section editor and, if accepted for review, detailed assessment by two or more independent peer reviewers.In double-blind peer review, all identifying information is removed from the submission so that author(s) remain anonymous to the reviewers and visa versa. Reviewers are asked to provide comment onA paper may go through more than one round of peer review before a recommendation is reached. The reviewers’ recommendation is sent back to the section editor* for endorsement before final approval is sought from the editors-in-chief.Members of the editorial team can submit their own papers to the journal or appear as a co-author on a paper. When this occurs they are removed from all editorial tasks associated with the paper and another member of the editorial team is assigned responsibility for overseeing the peer review. A competing interest must be declared with the submission and any resulting publication.The editors-in-chief may invite editorials and features. Features are identified as invited and not subject to peer review unless stated. Letters to the editor, media reviews, perspectives and video content are reviewed by the editors-in-chief.If you experience any adverse event arising from review process, or would like to tell us your views, please email
