Peer Review Process

Medical Ultrasonography promotes evaluation of all the scientific papers by independent reviewers. The editor-in-chief or one of the editors evaluates each manuscript and, in 1-3 weeks from reception, decides upon their priority level (sent to review, rejected without being sent for review or returned to authors with suggestions for improvement before submitting to review). The editors reserve the right to request any changes they may consider appropriate, in the title, structure or body of the paper. The papers are submitted to two reviewers with expertise in ultrasonography. Based on the reviewers' recommendations, the editors decide whether a paper is published or not. In case of marked discrepancy between the decisions of the two reviewers, the editor may send the manuscript to another arbitrator for additional comments and a recommended decision. The full decisional process may last up to 6 weeks. Failure of the authors to comply with the editorial revision requests may induce publication rejection. All manuscripts are checked before printing by the English language editor.
