Review Policy

AVITEC journal uses single-blind review, which means that the reviewer knows the author’s name, but the authors do not know the reviewers’ identities unless reviewers choose to include their names in the review.

Authors may request a double-blind review, in which both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process, but identities will still be known to the editor-in-chief and assigned section-editor. Requests must be made at the time of submission and the author is responsible for removal of identifying information from the manuscript. To participate in double-blind peer review, please prepare your manuscript in a way that conceals the identities of all the authors and leave comment to editor or to

The following steps should be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review.

  • The first page that reviewers should see should contain only the title, with no author names, affiliations, and any other information identifying the authors.
  • Do not include names or affiliations anywhere in the paper or in any supplemental materials.
  • Do not include any running headers that would identify authors.
  • Ensure there is no identifying information, including author names, company, and “last saved by” in the file names or metadata of any of the files submitted.

When you use a double-blind review, at the final draft of the manuscript for publication, you will need to put back any references to yourself, your institution, grants awarded, and so on.
