Peer Review Process

The Journal of Spinal Health and Performance employs a Double-Blind Peer Review for manuscripts submitted. The editor first reviews the article and then assigns it to the reviewers. A Statistical Editor also reviews the article. The Journal of Spinal Health and Performance works hard to maximize efficiency to expedite the review process. This process takes approximately six weeks from the submission of the article to the first decision. The JSHP focuses on saving time for authors.
