Peer review procedure
EDP Sciences is set up to the model of the Anglo-Saxon university presses, which means that all our publications are peer-reviewed. This guarantees the quality of our publications and we therefore regularly appeal to French and foreign scholars.
The procedure is as follows:
A manuscript that qualifies for publication by EDP Sciences, is forwarded by the publisher to two external peer reviewers. We then approach these external peer reviewers to write a peer review report.
If these two reviews share the same opinion, this opinion will be presented for agreement to the publishing editor. But If EDP Sciences receives only one review, with either a positive of a negative advice, or if the reviewers have different opinions, the manuscript will be sent to a third external peer reviewer.
External peer reviewers are not remunerated for their report.
