Palgrave Macmillan

Peer review procedure

Palgrave Macmillan prides itself on the high quality monographs it publishes. There is some variation in the peer-review process depending upon the academic/professional area.

For the standard process, initial proposals that qualify for publication are peer reviewed (single-blind) by at least one academic or expert.

Upon receipt of the complete, final manuscript it is peer reviewed by at least one academic or expert, who writes a review.

Commissioning staff discuss the review(s) with the author, and if necessary another reviewer may be sought.
