Peer-Review Process

In order to ensure a high scientific quality the CPSL uses a new Peer-Review System, which has the benefits that all researchers can have an impact on the contributions while a baseline standard is set by an established institution.
All submitted papers will be reviewed in a two-stage peer review process by experienced scientists of cooperating research institutes (level 1) as well as authors of other submitted papers (level 2). This ensures a consistent quality of the papers and reviews according to demanding standards through the first step as well as an influence of all participants on the quality of the papers through the second step. Therefore, each participants commits himself to review a paper by another author according to defined criteria and to form an expert opinion. All reviews are monitored by the editors to ensure the high quality of the papers and reviews.
