Clinical Proteomics operates a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous.
The benefit of single-blind peer review is that it is the traditional model of peer review that many reviewers are comfortable with, and it facilitates a dispassionate critique of a manuscript.
Manuscripts will be assigned to a handling Editor, who will appoint at least two referees. On receipt of their reports the handling Editor will make a recommendation to accept, to accept with minor revisions, to request major revisions and resubmission, or to reject. No manuscript will be rejected without being assessed by a member of the Editorial Board and one other expert.
Clinical Proteomics considers the following types of article: Letter to the Editor, Meeting report, Research, and Review. For more specific information, please take a look at our Submission Guidelines.
