Reviewer Guidelines

Introduction


MEDITECHJO (Medical Laboratory Technology Journal) supports peer-review, since it allows research to be evaluated and commented upon by independent experts who work within the same academic field as the authors. It also helps to improve manuscripts and allows the editor to assess a work’s suitability for publication.

 

Review process


The journal has a double-blinded peer-review process. Manuscripts are initially examined by the editorial staff and are sent by the Editor-in-Chief to two expert independent reviewers, either directly or by a Section Editor.
