Goodfellow Publishers

Peer review procedure

All books published by Goodfellow Publishers are independently peer reviewed to ensure that the highest standards are maintained.

The standard peer review procedure is to send the author’s proposal, table of contents and specimen material (when available) to at least two (ideally five) independent external reviewers. This is under usual double-blind peer review conditions.

The reviewers’ advice and recommendations are then sent to the author/s for comment and any issues are addressed.

Often the proposal is then reviewed once more, and all proposals are customarily required to have at least two positive peer reviews before a contract is offered to the author.
