Ensuring a Blind Review

When submitting for peer-review, you must follow these three steps to ensure anonymity:

  1. The title page must be uploaded separately from the manuscript, as an additional file, during step 4 of the submission process.
  2. Check that the text of your manuscript is also blinded; that is to say, any references within the manuscript which might reveal you to be the author are removed.
  3. Author identification must also be removed from the properties for the file.
