Peer Review Policy
Peer review plays an important role as part of our quality assurance. All articles published in the Beilstein Journals are peer reviewed by experts in the corresponding subfield of organic chemistry or nanotechnology. Detailed information about the review process is given in the Instructions for Referees. The assigned editor makes a final acceptance decision based on the referees’ recommendations. The identity of referees is not disclosed to authors or other referees throughout the process. The anonymized referee reports are sent to authors, but are not publically viewable.The primary intention of the review is to afford the editor an independent expert opinion of the scientific value of the manuscript and to give the necessary information needed for making a decision. Authors should be given detailed feedback about any deficiencies, what specific work is needed to improve their manuscript or how they can make their manuscript more accessible to nonspecialists. A review report should provide an author enough explanation to understand the basis of a decision but any weakness of a manuscript should not be unduly emphasised. Referees comments should be objective, impersonal and constructive.
The Beilstein-Institut supports open access and open science and makes the results of all its projects freely available to the scientific community as open access publications. The Beilstein-Institut offers various services and platforms to disseminate research and to assist scientists in communicating their work in the chemical sciences. Some examples of our open science activities and initiatives include:
