Double-blind peer review
Requirements for double-blind peer review
Nature Structural & Molecular Biology offers double-blind peer review; authors who choose this option will remain anonymous to the reviewers throughout the peer review process.
If you want to participate in double-blind peer review, you should:
- Prepare your manuscript in a way that conceals the identities of all the authors, by following the double-blind peer review guidelines,
- Tick the appropriate box in our manuscript tracking system – eJP – during submission,
- When completing the Editorial Policy Checklist form, where applicable, put ‘DBPR’ and your manuscript number in any sections that require author names.
Please note that authors are responsible for ensuring that the paper is properly anonymized; this will not be checked by your editor.
