General Peer-Review Process

In short, all manuscripts submitted for publication in our journals are strictly and thoroughly peer-reviewed. The review process is single blind. If the manuscript is accepted for full review, it will be reviewed by a minimum of two external reviewers.

Submitted manuscripts will undergo a detailed initial check including a Plagiarism Check in the Editorial Office. An Editor – usually the Editor-in-Chief or a board member of the journal – together with the Editorial Office takes charge of the peer-review process. It starts with a Preliminary Review by the Editor (finished no more than 10 days after manuscript submission).

After a manuscript is accepted for full review, the Editor will collect at least two review comments and prepare a decision letter based on the comments of the reviewers (finished no more than 4 weeks after preliminary review). The decision letter is sent to the Corresponding Author to request an adequate revision (peer-reviewed again whenever necessary). The author will be asked to format the manuscript according to SCIRP’s template before it goes into typesetting and proofreading with the publisher. The author will receive the paper in PDF produced by SCIRP for checking before it is published online.

Join SCIRP's Peer-Review Program!

SCIRP is one of the largest academic Open Access publishers worldwide. Manuscripts submitted to all our journals are peer-reviewed. Reviewers are involved in all manuscripts submitted to our journals. Based on the reviewer's comments, a Handling Editor (usually the Editor-in-Chief) is subsequently making a final decision about the way a manuscript needs to be improved. We at SCIRP sincerely invite you to join our peer-review program. By participating you will provide help to authors from all over the world and will supply them with your ideas and suggestions based on your valuable expertise.

If you are ready to be a volunteer, please submit your CV to service@scirp.org with email subject: Peer-Reviewer Application. The procedures can be outlined as follows:

(1) Send us your CV;
(2) Become a peer-reviewer;
(3) Receive manuscripts from us, review the manuscripts, and send back your comments within 5 days.

The list of Guest Reviewers can be searched by name or research field(s).

    Research Fields: add important and significant information to the knowledge base of invertebrate molecular biology with the goal in mind of designing new and novel products, methods and technologies that will be effective and useful in controlling agriculturally and biomedically important insects. The research expands the spectrum of biopesticides beyond Bacillus thuringiensis to include pesticidal materials that will control a variety of pests. Heterologous invertebrate systems are being used to identify and validate potential gene targets such as receptors, hormones and regulators of biological functions, and, whose impairment adversely affects normal development, differentiation and morphogenesis of vital organs and tissues associated with food digestion, reproduction, respiration and central nervous system activities, among others. The scientific approach takes advantage of the warehouse of knowledge for Drosophila and Caenorhabditis elegans. Several developmental marker proteins and their mutants from these organisms are
