Chronicles of Psychology Reviewer Guidelines
The manuscript is a confidential document. Please refer to the guidelines stated in the Reviewer Roles and Responsibilities and Ethical Responsibilities of a Peer-Reviewer. Gallaudet Chronicle of Psychology uses a system of masked peer review. This means that the reviewers receive manuscript free of any direct identifying information about the author(s). However, due to small number of student in our department, in some instances reviewers might suspect the identity of the author. Regardless, the reviewers are asked to refrain from any attempts to discuss the reviewing process with others (with exception of the Editors-in-Chief and Chronicle’s Faculty Editorial Supervisor); including the assumed author of the manuscript, even after the process of reviewing is completed. Similarly, even though reviewers’ names will be listed in corresponding edition of the Chronicle, authors will not be informed about the identity of the reviewer(s) of their manuscript. Authors are also asked to refrain from any attempts to discuss details of the reviewing process of their manuscript with their assumed reviewer.
As a reviewer you will be advising the Editors-in-Chief, who make the final decision. After the decision is made, Editors will inform you about the final decision. In addition, your de-identified review feedback sheet will be passed on to the author; please do not make any comments that you do not wish for the author to see. Even if we do not accept an article, we still want to pass on constructive comments that might help the author to improve it in the future.
Please give detailed comments (with references, whenever possible) that will both help the editors to make a decision on the article and the authors to improve it. Do be courteous and constructive in these comments and “do as you would be done unto”.
Finally, please strictly adhere to the timelines set by Editors-in-Chief. The process of publication is a long and complex procedure, and any delays in returning manuscript might result in deferral of its publication.
We suggest some points to consider below, but they are by no means an exhaustive checklist. Please use your discretion when evaluating manuscript.
When preparing your review feedback sheet, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
Thank you again for your willingness to review for Gallaudet Chronicle of Psychology. If you have any further questions, you can contact the Editors-in-Chief.
