Double blind peer review
To meet scientific standard all articles need to undergo a double-blind peer-review process. In a first step, all submitted manuscripts need to undergo a plagiarism check based on Crossref Similarity Check powered by iThenticate. In the next step, to save reviewers time, all submitted manuscripts are assessed by the editors together with the editorial board for suitability for the review process. If a manuscript do not comply with the journals standard they might get rejected before a formal reviewer process. According to the topic two reviewers with expertise in the file of concern will be invited on advice of the editorial board members. Reviewers only get access if they accept an invitation. Along with the manuscript the names of authors are not concealed to the reviewers. Reviewers should treat the review process confidentially and must not disclose any details to anyone not directly involved in the review process. Reviewers may consult colleagues within the institute, but need to identify them to the editors. If experts from outside the reviewer's institute are consulted, reviewers need to check with the editors beforehand to avoid involving anyone who may have been excluded by the editor. Both reviewers have to assess the quality of the manuscript in accordance to the review report form provided. Based on the review reports, the editors together with the editorial board members decide to: accept the manuscript (without or with minor revision), invite the authors to resubmit manuscript after adressing major concerns of complete revision or to reject manuscript due to substantial deficits.
The average acceptance rate of manuscript submissions in Landscape Online is about 37% - 42 accepted articles by a total of 114 received manuscripts (5 years period: 2016-2021).
The reviewer's role
Peer reviewers help to ensure the integrity of the scholarly record. The reviewer reports are for two purposes: a) to provide editors with information they need to reach a decision, b) to instruct the authors on how manuscript can be to enhanced and strengthened for publication. Therefore, reviewers submit both confidential comments to the editor and those to be considered for the authors. Reviewers will be guided with the help of an evaluation form provided. For detailed information we refer to the Ethical Guidelines for peer reviewers as provided by COPE.
We encourage 'review tandems', in which senior researchers collaboratively elaborate the review with junior members of their research unit. We believe that this is a valuable training for young scholars to gain first experience as reviewer and to learn about manuscript quality standards from the reviewers perspective to enhance own writing skills. Still, we advise you as a senior researcher to look over the comments and approve them before they are submitted. Furthermore, we ask to give credit to the editors on who contributed to the review. If you are interested in offering such a review tandem in your research unit please contact the Editorial Management.
Because Landscape Online is registered at Publons you can use your Publons account to get recognition for the reviews you perform for Landscape Online. Simply forward your "thank you review manuscript" Email you get and forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org
We acknowledge the reviewers of each year annually in the IALE Bulletin and the publishers newsletter of IALE-D as well as at the journals webpage.
We would like to thank all reviewers contributing their expertise to the peer review of manuscripts. We give a sincere thank to all reviewers since the launch of the journal for making Landscape Online possible and to ensure it's quality:
